THE IMPACT

Dedicated Safety

Up To 99%

The road to financial independence is different for everyone, but for the adults we serve at Rose Brooks Center, the road to independence is often much more difficult for many reasons. The biggest reason? Because they have endured economic and financial abuse – something which they have little or no control over.

Did you know that up to 99% of domestic violence survivors suffer financial hardship because of their partner’s abusive tactics? These tactics take many forms, including employment-related sabotage, controlled finances, and coerced debt through forced credit card expenses. This is why Rose Brooks has a comprehensive Economic Empowerment Program that teaches strategies to improve financial stability.

We thank The Allstate Foundation for their continued support of the program and for their “Moving Ahead Curriculum.” This financial empowerment resource provides Rose Brooks the ability to help survivors on their path to a solid financial future.

We also thank the case managers and advocates who facilitated workshops and provided 837 hours of support throughout the year. You help break the cycle of domestic violence by skillfully offering ways to overcome the devastating consequences of financial abuse.
