The Service Fund of NOW-NYC delivers educational forums on key women's issues and has been providing direct services and referrals to women for the past 25 years. The Service Fund's Project Access program currently benefits over 1,000 women per year across the five boroughs of New York City and its surrounding areas by providing a free call-in HELPLINE and free to low-cost Legal and Financial Clinics in the areas of Divorce, Custody, Employment Discrimination, and Financial Empowerment.
The National Organization for Women-New York City is seeking women's rights interns in the areas of Programming, Development, and Organizing.
