Around Touro

Congrats to Eden Mitrany from Touro Graduate School of Social Work on coming in first place in her category in the New York City Business Plan Competition (NYC-BPC)! Eden's business plan is the creation of an organization providing support to victims of domestic violence in the Jewish community. She envisions a shelter in Nassau County that will provide safe temporary housing, assistance with applying for public benefits so that the women can be financially independent, trauma-informed psychoeducation, support groups, and individual counseling for members. The NYC-BPC is the first stage in this competition for student entrepreneurs. As the winner, Eden is now entered into the New York State Business Plan Competition (NYS-BPC). Eden says, "This was a small but encouraging win. Since my organization's mission is to provide support to victims of domestic violence in the Jewish community, simply participating in a contest like this is an automatic success, as the movement to end domestic violence in the observant Jewish community is nurtured by visibility and decreasing stigma. Touro has offered me multiple layers of support in order to achieve this first-level win for my organization. From participating in the Moonshot Scholars Program to the Chesed Leadership Program, the early stages of building a kosher domestic violence shelter for women has been incubating within Touro. Faculty from Touro's various schools are generously offering further support to assist me in sharpening my presentation so that this much-needed organization will succeed."
