Survivors face a number of challenges as they work to rebuild their lives. Finding affordable housing is one of those challenges. Coupled with little if any savings survivors are forced to remain in shelters or housing that is insufficient.
In November 2019 Project Recover launched "The Survivor Fund" initiative. Through corporate sponsorship and fundraising survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence will be able to access interest free loans. These loans will provide the funds necessary for first and last months rent.
