GOOD TO BE GOOD, a grassroots nonprofit organization, offers an Empowerment Care Program (ECP) to diverse women, girls, and gender-diverse folks with intersecting identities experiencing gender-based violence, structural poverty, and facing forms of marginalization who need urgent relief and care. ECP helps meet their basic needs through supports of nutritious food boxes, direct cash transfers, gift cards, menstrual and personal aid, community resources, and low-barrier personalized referrals.
Gender disparities threaten long-term progress toward equality, resulting in substantial societal costs. Women & gender-diverse people from marginalized communities are at heightened risks of gendered violence, discrimination, instability, and deepened poverty, as long-standing inequities unevenly affect them. For many, the road to safety and stability isn't accessible, as they face numerous institutional and interpersonal barriers that hinder their pathway to care and justice.
GOOD TO BE GOOD's Empowering Care Program provides essential vital care services for women, girls, & gender-diverse folks from our priority communities. Contributions help ensure intersectional advocacy and low-barrier access to compassionate supports personalized to each person we serve so that they may sustain their well-being during uncertainty/crisis, providing the conditions to restore healing, stability, and autonomy. This program aims to meet the needs of our communities where they're at.
Our program aims to increase access to care services that empower women & gender+ people to build thriving lives with trauma-informed, restorative relief and care, centring their lived experiences in communities. Every woman's fundamental rights and needs must be supported to prevent setbacks. We know the profound human value of investing in women, upholding their rights to safety & justice, and enabling their capacity to exercise power & transformation, which create lasting benefits for all.
