THE STORY:

I am on the board of FreeFrom, an incredible nonprofit organization competing to win $100,000 from the Allstate Foundation this month.

FreeFrom came 2nd in last year's challenge and used the prize money to open its doors, hire 5 staff members, and help survivors in more than 18 states gain economic justice and financial independence.

We are so excited to see what we can do with your help this year! 

FreeFrom was founded to fill a gap: there are no resources readily available to survivors of domestic violence to help them build long-term safety for themselves and their children. 

Here are a few things we are working on:

We are currently working with 30 survivors of domestic violence in 3 cities to build their own small businesses and achieve financial independence through self-employment. 100% of our clients make a profit in the first month of their businesses being operational. None of our clients have returned to their abuser. In 2018, we want to expand our program to serve 180 survivors in 5 cities. 

We are building an online self-help compensation tool to help survivors across the country win economic justice. Survivors will be able to learn what their compensation options are (e.g. small claims court, criminal restitution, victims of crime funding, civil suit) and how to pursue them in their state.

We are building a program to help survivors repair their credit through financial coaching, credit-building loans, and policy reform. 

Thank you for supporting our work and believing in our vision of a world in which everyone can afford to be safe.
