Sparrow Society partners with Domestic Abuse and Human Trafficking organizations to offer Survivors a viable and dignifying economic empowerment opportunity. This allows her to work towards financial stability while in a safe and nurturing environment, while maintaining access to the ongoing psychosocial support. This support allows the survivor to get back on her feet at a more reasonable pace and provides a support structure that significantly reduces the secondary trauma often experienced by survivors as they re-enter the workforce. This program addresses so many of the issues surrounding women's empowerment both from the preventative and a restorative side — addressing the need for financial provision for survivors to rebuild their lives free from their abuser — and the very real need of girls who lack access to these essential items that will allow them to stay in school. It weaves together women of all ages who are all in hard circumstances on their own, but who have come together to support one another and build each other up and create pathways of empowerment for one another.
