The blog post,"Want to End Homelessness? Then We Need to Address Domestic Violence,"
addresses the need to understand domestic violence as a root cause of homelessness, and therefore an essential issue to be confronted by faith communities working to end injustice.

... Many faith communities dedicate themselves to ending poverty and homelessness as their spiritual mission. In order to end homelessness, we must understand the interconnections that foster injustice. Acknowledging the impact that violence has on victims and survivors isn’t enough. We need to understand that by confronting the issues of domestic and sexual violence, we will impact injustice at every level.  A more holistic view of justice will lead to the more holistic, and effective, responses that our communities need.
