Reveal is a New York City-based organization that aims to foster uplifting experiences for women survivors of domestic violence.
Created in 2006, the group partners with corporations and professionals in the beauty, health, and fashion industries to restore dignity, reinforce love, and celebrate beauty through volunteer opportunities that include monthly workshops and our signature Valentine's Day Ultimate Makeover event.
A Letter From The Founder
Reveal is very dear to my heart. I am honored to build a community that reminds women that we are all made beautifully, to be celebrated and loved with no strings attached. It is my desire and passion to be apart of a woman's healing process and reinforce her worth, her beauty and her dignity. Through our events and workshop experiences, women recovering from domestic violence and sex trafficking have the opportunity to believe that hope is more than tangible - it’s possible!
Through Reveal's programs and activities and with the help of over 1,200 volunteers, we have empowered more than 800+ women to create an alternative narrative that allows them to make positive decisions in their lives and break the cycle of domestic violence.
The goals of Reveal's programs are to create frequent touch points and experiences that promote self empowerment. Through monthly workshops women are taught the skills and tools necessary to re-enter society, such as career counseling, interviewing skills and self care workshops focused on fashion, beauty and health.
Along with our monthly workshops, we also host an annual Ultimate Makeover event to honor women and celebrate dignity and beauty through a day full of styling, pampering and celebration.
As we continue to grow, our vision is to continue developing strategic partnerships with established women’s domestic violence shelters, human trafficking organizations and homeless shelters, nationwide and internationally, in key cities where sex trafficking, domestic violence and fashion and beauty industries intersect.
The success of the initiatives and the impact they have had on the women we’ve supported to date has inspired our expansion beyond New York. We look forward to expand to the west coast in 2017 with more cities following in 2018 and beyond.
