Why we exist

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Launched in 2014, Shine Foundation ("Shine") aims to help homeless abuse survivors, in NYC and Baltimore, achieve financial independence.  We do this, by designing and delivering financial empowerment projects that have been customized to survivors' needs.  These projects may vary from financial workshops on topics, like budgeting and goal setting, to intensive job-readiness programs. 

As a purely volunteer-led group, we have successfully engaged almost 200 survivors, all of whom have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback.  And, in this coming year in NYC, we expect to help even more survivors improve their financial health!

What few realize is that limited financial literacy is the leading reason why survivors stay in or return to their abusive relationships.  In fact...

  • 98% of all domestic violence cases involve some form of financial abuse;
  • 74% of survivors stay in abusive relationships for longer due to financial concerns; and
  • Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness.
  • Yet, few dedicated financial services exist in domestic violence shelters across the U.S.

For these reasons, Shine is passionate about financially assisting homeless abuse survivors.  Today, we ask that you join us in helping survivors thrive, financially, by donating to our fundraising campaign.  100% of all proceeds will go directly to funding our projects.  Thanks for collaborating with us against abuse!
