The Shine Foundation
Why we exist: 7 out of 8 survivors return to their abusers, largely due to financial pressure. Shine is here to change that.
Our Approach: Our work is grounded in the belief that each of us has power. Shine strives to help survivors realize their power through their financial choices. For every financial program we…
PARTNER with domestic violence emergency shelters in NYC to financially educate their residents, survivors of domestic violence who have become homeless after leaving their abusers
DELIVER weekly, one-hour classes on-site at the emergency shelters that address survivors' budgeting, credit repair, and career advancement needs
ITERATE content and delivery based on feedback from survivors, shelter staff and Shine volunteers.
We are a 100% volunteer-run organization of individuals of various backgrounds, but we share one common thread: our passion for helping abuse survivors.
