Urban Resource Institute

For 39 years URI has been developing innovative programs to improve the lives of vulnerable populations, with a particular focus on survivors of domestic violence. We are the only domestic violence organization in New York City, and one of the few nationally, to extend these services to pets. We help individuals and families safely heal and gain the resources needed to live healthy and independent lives.
