Often when we hear about domestic violence, we think of physical abuse. Yet, financial abuse happens in 98% of all cases of domestic violence and is one of the most powerful ways to keep a victim trapped.
A domestic violence survivor will often stay or return to an abusive relationship as they don't have financial resources to break-free and start a new life.
Operation For HOPE Foundation, HOPE Fund provides domestic violence survivors with micro-loans to help them reach and remain safe.
What makes the HOPE Fund unique?
- Quickly places resources into the hands of a survivor; in a crisis within 24 - 48 hours.
- As survivors begin to thrive, they become contributors to the HOPE Fund by repaying their loan to help other survivors.
- With every HOPE Fund we also provide survivors with the Allstate Foundation Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculums. These materials provide support needed to help build personal financial management skills and independence.
