SPONSOR A SURVIVOR
Eyes Wide Open addresses obstacles to healing for survivors of trafficking and prostitution by offering rent free housing, treatment, education and job readiness. We are grounded in universal values of compassion, hospitality and community living. We support the survivor in all phases of their reintegration back into our community.
First, the most basic of needs are addressed: Food, Immediate Shelter, Clothing, and Medical.
Next, we focus on the emotional: Group support, Trauma Recovery Counseling, Mentoring.
And finally, the practical skill sets are accessed to restore confidence: Career Assessment and Job Training, Completion of Education, Tutoring, Permanent Living Arrangements, Continued Counseling, etc.
The hope Eyes Wide Open offers is priceless in its value and is very laborious but is the most heart- warming part of the process and it can be fully accomplished as you partner with us to support these programs.
Your financial support of Eyes Wide Open NENY, Inc. is designated for these specific and necessary needs. It is most important that the survivor is enveloped with every support mechanism required to ensure a successful transition.
