A key element for survivors to succeed beyond long-term care programs, is for them to achieve financial independence. This discussion will be led by Worthwhile Wear's executive director, Dan Emr as he shares how their organization helps the women in their care graduate with full-time jobs, and savings of between $5,000-$10,000. Additionally, Dan will share how organizations can incorporate revenue generation into their work, while providing employment to survivors in their care at the same time.

Objectives from presentation:
1. How to help survivors gain employment and save
2. How only offering survivors housing and care isn't enough for long-term success and independence
3. Learn how your non-profit organization can develop a revenue stream and employ the women in their care
