We work directly with survivors and significant others to ensure that their immediate and longer-term health, housing, financial, and safety needs are being met. This includes providing information and comprehensive support to survivors in accessing health insurance, housing funds, emergency shelter, victim compensation, public benefits, and more. The program also advocates for policy changes that further economic justice for survivors.
