An Introduction to Survivor Wealth and Wellness
February 25th from 10:00 – 11:30 am PST
Survivors need money to stay safe and heal. In order to break the cycle of violence, we must prioritize survivor wealth both for survivors and the service providers that support them. FreeFrom is on a mission to make safety affordable and wealth attainable for survivors and their service providers. Join us as we create space for service providers to explore their own relationship to money and their own challenges to accessing wealth and safety. We will then spend some time exploring the definition of economic abuse and how investing in survivor wealth and wellness can help build long term safety for survivors. Attendees will walk away with resources and tools needed to incorporate financial coaching, income development, and economic abuse intervention practices into their existing programming.
