The goal of this campaign is to continue providing life-saving services to victims of domestic violence. Your donation will directly benefit Empresarias del Futuro/Entrepreneurs of the Future. This innovative program teams with community partners to provide a pathway to economic security to survivors of DV. During this 15-week program, women learn leadership skills, financial education, and small business development with a focus on microenterprise. While many are learning how to start a business, many participants already have one and are learning to expand from planning, to funding, to execution. With the needs of the Latino community at the forefront, classes are offered in Spanish and provide child care onsite. The curriculum has been specially developed for maximum impact among the community we serve.
