Economic Empowerment Services

Intimate partner violence costs a cisgender female survivor an average of $104,000 across her lifetime. 

For a survivor who has escaped gender violence and has not had access to the higher education, technology, or networks necessary to secure a living-wage job, the costs of abuse and life in New York City make longterm healing and freedom nearly impossible. 

We believe that economic empowerment, self-sufficiency, and the opportunity to do meaningful work are critical to long-term stability and safety for survivors of gender violence.
