Representatives from Vera House, WISE Women’s Business Center and the South Side Innovation Center announced the launch of Project Phoenix April 2012 in Syracuse. The program will be funded through a $100,000 grant from Verizon
I had the pleasure of meeting a few of these women and hear their stories of triumph, victory, and survival. I take it as a great privilege and honor to have been given the chance to tell their stories of transformation through Project Phoenix and their continuous journey to starting their own businesses.
Vera House is working with 10 survivors who will receive training and be eligible to apply for a Verizon Domestic Violence Entrepreneurship Grant, up to $5,000 for funding to help launch their new business.
