THE STORY:

WORKING IN SUPPORT OF EDUCATION wrote -

Almost 60% of domestic violence survivors say that their abusers prevent them from having money of their own and that money is hidden from them. This form of violence can create serious obstacles that prevent survivors from achieving economic security once they leave the abusive relationship.

The MoneyW!SE Program for Survivors of Domestic Violence is a program of w!se that addresses this issue by helping survivors become financially literate and self sufficient. We offer a 12-week course on personal finance and at the end, administer the w!se Certification Test – a national standardized exam. Those passing become Certified Financially Literate, a credential that can help them in their jobs and search for work.

Classes meet once a week for two hours. Food, childcare, fares for round-trip public transportation, and an incentive award for attendance are provided. Financial counseling may also be offered.

Launched by w!se in 2009 in New York City, MoneyW!SE is now also offered in Salt Lake City, UT, San Diego, CA and is being brought to Philadelphia, PA in the fall of 2014.  Earlier this year, a Spanish language version of the program was also launched. 

Help us expand the MoneyW!SE Program so we can reach more survivors in need.
