Partner with women™s shelters to develop and pilot income-generating market-driven initiatives to increase the sustainability of shelter operations.

(Particular attention should be paid to ensuring the confidentiality and safety of shelter beneficiaries in the development of these initiatives.) - Build Leadership Skills:
