The Allstate Foundation Helps Empower Victims of Domestic Violence
The Allstate Foundation continues to be an important partner in Friendship Home’s (www.friendshiphome.org) ability to empower victims of domestic violence to take charge of their futures and deal with the financial realities that make recovering from an abusive relationship difficult.
An Allstate Foundation grant has been supporting Friendship Home’s Economic Empowerment Program for a number of years, and that will remain the case again in 2018. This is an increasingly important part of Friendship Home’s advocacy work; ensuring victims have the information, the tools and the skills to reclaim their financial independence. The Allstate curriculum “Moving Ahead Through Financial Management” is a realistic and common ‘cents’ guide for victims who are taking charge of their lives.
Friendship Home provides safe shelter, support and advocacy for victims of domestic violence and their children. To access shelter and services, call (402) 437-9302. To learn more about Friendship Home, visit www.friendshiphome.org.
