At the meeting, you must have documentation of one of the following:

  • Fleeing domestic violence: police report, letter from a domestic violence shelter, court documentation, restraining order, contact from a social worker.
  • Exiting jail: court documentation, documentation from a parole officer, contact from correctional facility
  • Experiencing a medical emergency: discharge papers/orders, American Disability Act, contact from hospital

Additionally, all travelers must provide a name and phone number for a contact person in the destination city. This person will need to confirm housing in the destination city.
