Economic Empowerment Resource Guide

Authored By: City Bar Justice Center - Immigrant Justice Project

While this guide is specifically intended to provide helpful information for immigrant victims of violent crimes, it may benefit many New Yorkers who are entering the job market for the first time, researching college or other educational programs, or looking to change careers. It provides information about: - high-school equivalency (GED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs - welfare/job centers that service immigrants throughout New York City and accept applications for cash assistance, food stamps, and Medicaid - job training and job placement programs - employment agencies - personal financial literacy classes to teach how to budget and save money - financial aid for higher education (such as college) - small business resources, including micro-loans
