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 Human Services & Social Workers

We will provide human services workers access to the Self Sufficiency Calculator for the City of New York in late fall 2021. The Calculator helps determine eligibility for work supports for low-wage workers, enabling them to remain in the workforce until they can earn a wage that supports their families.

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.
