Getting & Keeping a Job

Domestic violence often jeopardizes a survivor’s ability to work and have a steady income to live independently. Employment Advocacy services support survivors through all stages of the employment process, from preparing for a job search to getting and keeping a job.

THE IMPACT

Empowerment by Employment

Creating safe, independent futures for survivors of domestic violence.

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.
