Helping New Yorkers achieve economic stability and financial self-sufficiency for themselves and their families since 1970

For Policy Makers

We educate and advocate for socially just public policies and work to build the capacity of the human services and other sectors to help families achieve financial self-sufficiency.

For Social Workers

We provide social service workers free training on the Self Sufficiency Calculator for the City of New York, enabling low-wage workers to receive the benefits they need to remain in the workforce.

Our Mission

The Women’s Center for Education and Career Advancement is a nonprofit committed to economic justice and career opportunities for all New York City working families.
