By Girl Power News , in News , at October 26, 2022

reacHIRE, committed to supporting people returning to the workplace through returnship programs and technology solutions, announced today that its Aurora SaaS platform will power the new job readiness program from Jewish Women International (JWI) titled ReStart. ReStart connects survivors of domestic abuse in a supportive, cohort model where they receive professional and emotional support to help them embark on their return-to-work journey with confidence. Built on the foundation of reacHIRE’s signature return-to-work program, participants will gain access to Aurora, a professional development platform. The Aurora platform includes self-directed and guided support, where survivors will be surrounded by a job-centric readiness curriculum and a secure network of women who face similar challenges and experiences.

reacHIRE & Jewish Women International (JWI) announce today a partnership program to support Domestic Abuse survivors.

JWI’s new ReStart program consists of four, five-month cohorts of domestic abuse survivors who will form a supportive peer community using reacHIRE Aurora platform to connect and learn. Participants will take part in trauma-informed, survivor centered workshops where they will explore emotions surrounding re-entering or entering the workforce, refresh their professional skills, and gain financial literacy skills with training from JWI’s Life$avings program for survivors. Participants will also receive professional work attire from Our Closet In Your Neighborhood. The ReStart program will be offered to current or former clients of the domestic violence programs who are members of the JWI’s National Collaborative of Jewish Domestic Violence Programs.
