She’s extraordinary, having already shown the will to overcome adversity. She wants more for herself than the history from which she comes. She has goals and hopes and dreams. Once a pathway is identified to get achieve them, Empower Her Network helps her breakdown roadblocks in the way.
The women we serve are willful, self-determined, hardworking American born and immigrant survivors of domestic human trafficking who identify as female and are 18+ years old with legal immigration and work status in the United States (or have legal status pending and imminent).
Having been stripped of basic human rights for years and sometimes decades, the women of Empower Her Network face different combinations of intimidating but not insurmountable obstacles: trapped in the minimum wage poverty spiral, facing housing barriers with bad credit or no credit, unable to afford vocational or education opportunities. Empower Her Network funds those tangible needs while curating confidence, igniting hope and establishing focus. These life skills are purposefully held back from trafficked persons and need to be relearned.
