Trauma & Addiction Support for Women
We call it HER TURN.
Health. Empowerment. Resiliency. Treatment. Understanding. Recovery. Network.
HER TURN is all about empowering at-risk women within their own communities. We give minority women the opportunity to create a community network that will become a bridge to a better life.
HER TURN is founded on education and connection via street outreach, case management, and local support groups. We’ll connect you with local partners – such as NuHealth, Northwell, Planned Parenthood, Adelphi and LICADD – and you will receive support.
We work with women ages 18 and up who have a history of trauma and/or substance use (active or inactive). Our goal is to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDs and other widespread physical diseases.
