Friendship Home Receives Grant from Verizon HopeLine
Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) is proud to have received a grant from Verizon HopeLine as they partner together to support victims of domestic violence as they achieve self-sufficiency. Victims of domestic violence have limited resources when fleeing an abuser. Through this grant, Friendship Home will help prepare adult victims in their transitional housing program for independence with two 12-week financial education classes in 2019, assisting with the purchase of materials, facilitation, and childcare.
The classes utilize the Bridges Out of Poverty curriculum, Getting Ahead in a Just Getting by World, to help them rebuild their lives. The classes are designed to help victims build sustainability through strategically examining their own resources and those within our community.
Verizon HopeLine, Verizon Wireless domestic violence prevention initiative, is committed to assisting survivors through education and support from programs throughout the nation. Friendship Home values the grants and encouragement Verizon HopeLine provides and to those they serve.
Friendship Home is a place where survivors of domestic violence can find safety and rebuild their lives. For further information about donating, visit www.friendshiphome.org or call (402) 434-0166.
