Founded in 1984, Sanctuary for Families is New York’s largest nonprofit provider of wrap-around services exclusively for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender-based violence. Sanctuary’s Economic Empowerment Program (EEP) is New York City’s only intensive, living-wage career training program specifically for abuse survivors.

UNFCU Foundation’s grant will cover stipends to make internships accessible for Sanctuary’s EEP participants and help prepare them for living-wage jobs. The EEP program will also provide career readiness training to over 100 participants, helping them to obtain certifications and eventually secure job placements in the 12 to 18 months following program completion.
