Read all about us:
WREF is committed to funding programs whose aim is to eradicate domestic violence. To this end, it applied for and received a grant from the Avon Foundation for the Avon Empowerment Self-Sufficiency Program. (Out of over 150 applications throughout the nation, WREF was one of 32 winners). WREF sub-contracted the grant to My Sisters Place to run the program out of the Family Justice Center which is located in the White Plains Court Complex.
