Financial Resources to Break and Stay Free
Safe+Sound Somerset’s Financial Literacy and Empowerment program supports survivors of domestic abuse in creating lives free from economic abuse and dependency. Services provided through our Financial Empowerment Center equip clients with the knowledge, skills, and tools to re-gain control of their finances and their future.
Through one-on-one coaching survivors of economic abuse are empowered to create their financial destiny. Survivors learn the basics of money and credit management, savings, housing stability and future financial planning. Clients are connected to resources and services that support their wellness goals to attain self-sufficiency and financial autonomy.
Financial empowerment groups offer a safe environment for survivors to share their financial experiences with others in a similar situation. Topics of the group workshops include financial safety planning, resume writing, credit building and improvement, and holiday savings and spending.
Children’s Financial Literacy Program
