In the event of an emergency
Our PALS (People and Animals Living Safely) program--the only program in New York City and one of the few nationally--allows survivors to co-shelter with their pets.
We help victims heal. Our counselors and social workers meet with clients one-on-one and in group settings to help them recover from emotional and physical trauma, build their confidence, and begin to envision a future that they control.
We foster stability and independence. URI’s specialized programs provide survivors with the foundation they need to become self-sufficient and independent. We work with clients to find permanent housing; provide job-skills training; professional development opportunities; financial literacy education; and legal assistance to help resolve issues such as custody, immigration issues, and orders of protection.
