Challenge

Gender disparities threaten long-term progress toward equality, resulting in substantial societal costs. Women and gender-diverse people from marginalized communities are at heightened risks of gender violence, discrimination, instability, and legislated poverty, as inequities unevenly affect them. For many, the road to safety and equity isn't accessible; they have fewer resources and face institutional and interpersonal barriers, as well as under-investments that hinder pathways to well-being.

Solution

GOOD TO BE GOOD's Empowering Care Program provides essential care services and short-term supplies to women, girls, and gender-diverse people from our priority communities. We see direct service as a critical entry point to gender and equitable progress. By serving women where they are and meeting them where they're at, we can support them immediately while helping to cultivate conditions that empower them as they restore and rebuild their lives and reclaim their rights, on their terms.

Long-Term Impact

Our program aims to increase low-barrier and anti-oppressive access to supports and critical care services that empower women and gender-diverse people with restorative relief and care, centering their lived experiences in communities. Their fundamental rights and basic needs must be valued to prevent setbacks. There's profound broader value for communities when we invest in their well-being and justice, uphold rights to safety and dignity, and enable their capacity to exercise power.
