Financial Training for Domestic Abuse Survivors
Tuesday, July 24, 2007 2:57 PM

Domestic violence survivors face enormous economic barriers.  Regardless of economic background, survivors often have little financial resources or face crippling debt.  These financial problems can and do result in the return to abusive partners.

To address the problem, the National Network to End Domestic Violence Fund has partnered with the domestic violence program of the Allstate Foundation to create a five-workbook curriculum. The curriculum addresses issues ranging from the first few weeks through the first few years of economic independence, with a focus on survival, safety, and self-sufficiency.
