New York is a place for everyone.
The Brave House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit supporting young immigrant women, ages 16-24, in New York City, with a focus on survivors of gender-based violence. We provide legal advocacy, mentorship, holistic services, and community events - including art class, meditation, English lessons, self-defense, dance, career advising, health insurance enrollment, museum visits and more.
We've supported our members through-out the Covid-19 pandemic, providing cash assistance, warm meals, and virtual events to stay connected with each other through these challenging times.
Our members collectively come from over 13 different countries and span the 5 boroughs of NYC and Long Island. Many are fleeing violence and seeking asylum in the United States, and at our core we provide legal advocacy to fight for the humanitarian protections that they deserve.
Our ultimate vision is a world where every girl thrives, leads, and is valued, regardless of where she was born or what she has been through. We seek to disrupt cycles of violence against women, enhance educational & career opportunities, fight for legal protections, and amplify the voices of a population who are often silenced and underserved. To see our impact in action, you can follow along to see pictures from our events and the amazing women in our sisterhood.
We deeply appreciate your support helping reach our goal for Giving Tuesday (December 1) - the biggest day of charitable giving for the entire year. As a 501(c)(3), your contribution today is tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law. Our EIN# is 83-3670811.
We've love to extend a special invitation to JOIN US on November 23rd at 7:00pm for a night of poetry, advocacy, and action! Our Poetry Open Mic Night seeks to amplify young immigrant voices. Over the course of the night, you’ll hear performances from over 10 of our members, an announcement from our founder, and a special piece from a surprise Broadway guest. The zoom link will be provided once you register - we'd hope to see you there!
