Mission Statement

Web of Benefit was created as a non-profit organization by women affected by domestic violence, for women escaping domestic violence, with the "soul" purpose of promoting liberation and personal independence of women in the Greater Boston area, while breaking the inter-generational cycle of abuse.

Our goal is to recognize and aid in the reclamation of the power of the feminine spirit, while assisting women in reaching their highest potential, free from the threat of violence.

Web of Benefit operates under a "pay it forward" philosophy, where each woman assisted contributes to the Web of Benefit network by doing three good works, on whatever level she is able, for other women in need.

Description

Web of Benefit was created in 2004 as a non-profit organization by women affected by domestic violence, for women escaping domestic violence, with the "soul" purpose of promoting liberation and personal independence of women in the Greater Boston area. In 2009, WOB expanded its grant-giving to the Cook County/ Chicago area and is now planning for expansion in other cities.

To date, Web of Benefit, Inc. has awarded more than 800 Self-Sufficiency Grants to survivors of domestic violence for: housing stabilization, education, computers, child care, transportation, health care and micro-financing small businesses. These grants were specifically designed to help each woman define and realize her own individual goals and dreams.
