Most of us need a steady income to meet our basic needs and live independently. Often this means earning money through work. Employment Advocacy services support domestic violence survivors through all stages of the employment process – from preparing for a job search to getting and keeping a job.
Nationally, 30% to 52% of employed victims of domestic violence lose their jobs due in part to domestic violence. Survivors have endured partners who have caused employment sabotage, and long-term harm to the survivor’s employment history. The need for employment advocacy among survivors is critical as they build a new future, free from violence.
Our Employment Advocacy Program helps survivors create independence by improving employment readiness, job obtainment, and job retention – in addition to other economic and long-term housing goals.
