Educate to empower.

Whether you’re a concerned loved one, an advocate trained to work with victims or are experiencing abuse yourself, education is a powerful step in the right direction. Our online curricula range from lesson plans for financial empowerment in English and Spanish to career planning and healthy financial relationship lessons for college students.

Hands cup a red heart

Support vital resources.

On one day in 2018, more than 11,000 requests for emergency shelter, child care and other services went unanswered because domestic violence programs lacked funding. We work to reverse this trend with a robust grant program for state coalitions and nonprofits and by encouraging public support of local nonprofits.
