HER supports vulnerable young women ages 18 to 25 who have aged out of foster care with no support, have experienced homelessness, drug addiction, early pregnancy, sexual exploitation, or other traumas. Their needs only escalated when the pandemic hit because street life became even more dangerous. Maintaining on-foot outreach in all eight wards of the District, conducting wellness checks, assisting with shelter access, providing food, and supporting basic needs (hygiene products, snacks, food gift cards, and even underclothes), HER also continued its one-to-one support for those in crisis and virtual support to ensure that others continue on their journey in a positive way. As the world reopens, in-person individualized skills development, sexual health workshops, and education, employment, and housing assistance resume. 95% of HER women will be empowered to make progress on their personally identified goal plan even in a brutal year.
