Help Homeless Women Succeed

Your Gift to First Step Will Be Doubled!

Roughly 75 percent of the 60,000 New Yorkers sleeping in homeless shelters tonight are in families – mostly female-headed households fleeing eviction or domestic violence. These women face a tremendous array of obstacles to stability, including a lack of full-time employment, low educational attainment, and self-esteem shattered by domestic abuse.

The Coalition's First Step Job Training Job Program helps homeless and low-income women gain the skills, experience, and confidence needed to find living wage jobs and build a better life for their families.

We're tremendously excited to announce that we just received a $10,000 challenge grant from one of our donors to support this amazing program.

For every dollar we raise for First Step – up to $10,000 – between now and September 29th, this generous donor will match your gift! This is such a wonderful opportunity to help homeless and low-income women, so please help us reach our $10,000 goal.
