what is it?
For years, survivors have told us that the most important thing we can do is to help them get a job. Employment allows them to transition to self-sufficiency and establishes a sense of self-worth. To a survivor, a job is the first step in pursuing a future of his or her own choosing, empowering him or her to create a new life, free from exploitation.
3Strands Global protects survivors and those who are most vulnerable in the Sacramento Region (transitional aged-foster youth and homeless youth) from exploitation by placing them in sustainable, trauma-informed jobs with employers who understand their unique needs. We also refer them to the behavioral health services and other resources they need to succeed.
Over 300 survivors and at-risk individuals have received direct services in the Sacramento Region.
3Strands Global Foundation collaborates with over 55 agencies to provide services and facilitate employment.
