At the York Street Project, they take on the highly-visible factors of Education, Housing and Childcare that block women from creating self-fulfilled, self-sufficient lives. At the same time, they take on the less visible factors: healing the hidden damage that the cycle exacts. Working with brave women, they help them take on unlearning the lessons of hopelessness and helplessness. Take on restoring destroyed self-esteem. Take on addressing the insidious developmental delays in their children.
