Financial Independence for Latina Survivors
of Domestic Violence

A free training for OVW grantees and other providers of domestic violence services for Latina survivors of Domestic Violence, including immigrant women.

There is broad recognition within the domestic violence movement that the lack of financial independence is a major barrier that contributes to keeping many victims/survivors in violent and abusive relationships. Acquiring financial knowledge can be a key step for the survival of many victims and their children.

Through this training, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the specific needs and circumstances of Latina victims as concerns financial education and cultural considerations
  •  Be trained in the basics of financial literacy and the development of small businesses
  •  Receive copies of our training curriculum and training video: ¡Si Podemos/Yes We Can!— Beyond Domestic Violence: Achieving Financial Independence. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with WESST, a nonprofit agency dedicated to small business development and financial training, based in Albuquerque, NM
  • Learn effective methods for facilitating workshops using our training curriculum (¡Si Podemos/Yes We Can)

Alianza will be conducting one more Financial Independence for DV Survivors, probably in early fall. Once we get the location approved by OVW, we will post the location & dates, and open up the registration.
