GOOD TO BE GOOD, a grassroots nonprofit organization offers an Empowerment Care Program (ECP) to diverse women, girls, and gender-diverse folks, particularly Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, who have experienced gender-based violence, structural poverty and forms of marginalization. ECP supports includes nutritious food boxes, relief cash assistance, gift cards, menstrual and personal aid, a note of positive affirmation, community-based resources, and low-barrier services and referrals.
Gender inequity is one of the greatest threats to lasting peace and sustainable development, having tremendous costs on communities and societies. Marginalized and low-income women & girls are at heightened risks of gender-based violence, economic instability, and deeper poverty levels, and these long-standing inequities unevenly affect them. For many women, freedom, security, and safety aren't their first options. The need for community care and gender empowerment is more significant than ever!
GOOD TO BE GOOD's Empowering Care provides essential and restorative care for women, girls, and gender-diverse folks who have experienced the effects of violence, structural poverty, marginalization, social isolation. Your contributions will help ensure advocacy and low-barrier access to compassionate supports individualized to each person so they may sustain their well-being during uncertainty, providing the conditions for meaningful pathways to stability, healing, security, and agency.
Our program aims to empower made-vulnerable women to build safe and thriving livelihoods with trauma-informed, enhancing care and uplifting their voices and experiences in communities. We see profound value in supporting women to access their human rights: the right to safety, protection, food, shelter, healthcare, and enabling their development and capacity to exercise power and transformation for themselves. To empower women means a lasting investment in their future-and the whole ecosystem!
