Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $800,000)
Restore NYC serves survivors of human trafficking in the five boroughs of NYC. Restore’s core population is adult, female-identified U.S. citizens, permanent residents (green card holders), and foreign nationals. Restore operates under a Housing First philosophy and practices a low-barrier and strengths-based approach in order to connect survivors as quickly and efficiently as possible to sustainable housing. Services are survivor-centered, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed. Survivors will be offered a range of housing options, including emergency, transitional, rapid rehousing, and/or flexible funding to facilitate self-sufficiency and transition into safe, affordable, and sustainable housing.
