Every dollar up to $5000 that FreeFrom raises before December 31st will be matched by two generous donors! Your donation will directly help survivors of domestic violence to achieve economic justice and long-term financial stability so that they can build safe lives free from abuse for themselves and their children.
Without a way to rebuild financially, survivors typically won’t leave an abuser. If they do, they risk homelessness, losing custody of their children, or having to return to their abuser. Often, survivors will visit shelters several times but never actually be able to afford to leave for good or build safe lives for themselves and their children.
That’s where FreeFrom comes in. We’re looking past crisis intervention to violence prevention, by helping survivors achieve financial stability so that they can leave and never have to go back. This is how we will break the cycle of violence against women in the US.
Here’s what we do:
1. Through our national civil legal program, we provide survivors with the opportunity to hold their abusers financially accountable. Domestic violence costs $8.3Bn annually, and survivors bear the brunt of this burden. It’s time to put the responsibility back on the abuser.
2. Through our entrepreneurship program, we help survivors to start their own small businesses. We offer business plan consulting, marketing training, mentorship, counseling, branding, legal services, and seed funding to help survivors get their businesses off the ground and to a point of self-sufficiency.
Help us unleash the potential that survivors have not just to survive, but to thrive.
