mary-kayThe Mary Kay Foundation has awarded URI a $20,000 grant to support our domestic violence shelter programs. With this funding, we are able to provide computer training to interns in our Working Internship Network program, which gives shelter residents valuable job training and experience that empowers them to move forward and attain self-sufficiency.

Since 2000, the foundation has provided annual grant funding to domestic violence organizations that assist survivors and work to prevent and eliminate abuse. In 2014, the foundation awarded a total of $3 million to 150 domestic violence shelters throughout the United States, serving an estimated 400,000 women and children. “URI is grateful to the Mary Kay Foundation for its support and recognition of the work we do to help survivors recover from domestic violence and rebuild their lives,” said URI President and CEO Nathaniel Fields.
