Economic abuse is a tactic used by most abusers in violent relationships which often leaves the abused individual with no income, no credit standing and dependant on the abuser for basic living needs. In order for victims of abuse to leave the abusive relationship they must feel financially secure. This is why the Allstate Foundation has designed the Moving Ahead through Financial Literacy Curriculum. This curriculum is a comprehensive package of financial tools and information that is designed to (1) support victims of domestic violence in achieving economic empowerment, and (2) educate and train advocates to work with domestic violence victims as they move forward on the path to financial security.
RICADV is offering advocates and staff from community based organizations a "train the trainer" session on this curriculum. Participants will learn how to use this tool with clients and leave with free copies of the curriculum to get them started with the trainings.
