Employ + Empower
In an effort to prevent exploitation and re-exploitation, Employ + Empower (E+E) supports and economically empowers individuals through intensive case management.
Individuals served within the program include survivors of human trafficking and other abuse, individuals at a high risk of being exploited, and others who face barriers to sustainable economic opportunities.
Case Workers and Social Workers meet with individuals to first understand their physical, mental, and emotional needs. Each program participant brings a unique story and goals to the table, and no goal is too big or too small.
Program participants are connected with resources they need to succeed in the workforce, including transportation, professional clothing, job application assistance, childcare, mental health services, and so much more.
Through this wrap-around support, individuals are equipped to enter a sustainable job or pursue training and certification, obtained through E+E’s partnership with local agencies and social ventures.
