Empower Her Network collaborates with ready survivors of human trafficking who find themselves in the same vulnerable circumstance that led to their initial exploitation by removing housing barriers, financing education, and uncovering employment opportunities. For the ones who are ready, EHN clears a path to the future they design.
Empower Her Network exists to address an issue identified by immediate aftercare providers: some survivors have to leave the program of shelter after 3-24 months without a realistic long-term economic alternative. These women present risk for re-trafficking, homelessness, and resorting to sex work. They need assistance tackling societal barriers surrounding housing, education, and employment to break exploitation and poverty cycles and remain forever free. Empower Her Network collaborates with a survivor on an 18 month Empowerment Plan that will remove the obstacles in her way and clear the path for independence.
EHN’s innovative approach leans into existing services to eliminate overlapping resources while putting each survivor in the driver’s seat, often for the first time. It is true empowerment, with clinical support and guidance. The women we work with are motivated and ambitious. Our unique approach puts each survivor at the center of service, determining her own success.
