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.
Real stories of impact
"Sasha's* story illustrates the success of this program: a 19-year old - homeless youth, Sasha had no family support around her, no work experience and no safe to go. Every day she was at risk. 3SGF found Sasha and worked with her to increase her employability. After months of coaching, training and support, she got her first job. She now earns enough money to rent an apartment, and has received the "Employee of the Quarter" and a promotion! Every day she is stepping closer to her dreams.
