Financial Empowerment Class
Learn to become more financially stable and achieve your goals
What is the Financial Empowerment Class?
Abuse can come in many forms one of which is financial. In fact close to 98% of abuse victims encounter some form of financial abuse. Financial abuse can be very subtle or completely overt but are in fact a common tactic used by abusers to gain power and control in a relationship.
The short and long term effects of financial abuse can be devastating. In the short term, access to assets is imperative to staying safe. Without assets, survivors are often unable to obtain safe and affordable housing or the funds to provide for themselves or their children.
In the long term, survivors can be left with ruined credit scores, legal issues and a lack of financial knowledge that can challenge their ability to gain independence and maintain long term financial and personal security.
