The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), is a revenue stream from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG offers a flexible source of funds to local communities used to improve their living environment.
The CDBG helps support Safe Horizon’s Court Programs, as well as our 24-hour Hotlines.
For many survivors of violence, the journey to safety and healing starts with a simple but life-changing phone call to one of our specialized hotlines. Safe Horizon’s Hotline advocates offer personalized, non-judgmental support as they talk with survivors about their safety, provide information about resources in the community, and connect survivors to our programs and services.
