EEP is different
Unlike many workforce programs for hard-to-employ groups, EEP seeks to help participants avoid low-wage, low-skill employment. We provide clients with literacy skills, professional development, and the advanced IT training that employers seek, so they can find living-wage, career track work.
Our approach is bolstered by Sanctuary’s comprehensive services for survivors of gender violence. EEP participants can access counseling, legal, and childcare services on-site. Participants also receive monthly metrocards, meals, professional clothing, and a stipend.
