Description

No Safe Place: A Survey of Hate Crimes and Violence Committed against Homeless People in 2014 & 2015 documents the known cases of violence against individuals experiencing homelessness by housed individuals in those two years. The report includes descriptions of the cases, current and pending legislation that would help protect homeless people, and recommendations for advocates to help prevent violence against homeless individuals.

NCH has documented 1,650 acts of violence against homeless individuals by housed perpetrators over the past 17 years (1999
-2015). These crimes are believed to have been motivated by the perpetrators' biases against people experiencing
homelessness or by their ability to target homeless people with relative ease. The crimes include an array of atrocities such as
murder, beatings, rapes, and even mutilations.
