BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY

Every year, our programs give nearly 300 women and children the tools they need to begin their journey toward a life of self-sufficiency.

WHAT WE DO

At the York Street Project we take on the highly-visible factors of Education, Housing and Childcare that block our women from creating self-fulfilled, self-sufficient lives.

At the same time we also take on the less visible factors, healing the hidden damages that the cycle perpetuates. Working with our brave women, we help them take on unlearning the lessons of hopelessness and helplessness, restoring destroyed self-esteem, and addressing the insidious developmental delays in their children.
