Making Asset Building Accessible to Survivors of Domestic Violence: A Toolkit

General Material
Published Date
January, 2014

This toolkit includes ideas on how to integrate economic empowerment into your work with survivors of domestic violence through the use of a strengths-based model, an introduction to credit and the importance of credit as an asset, information about Matched Savings Accounts and Individual Development Accounts, and a resource guide to guide you as you start incorporating asset building strategies into your work. The project was created by Bradley Angle, the first domestic violence shelter on the West Coast, and supported by the Allstate Foundation, CASA of Oregon, and the Foundation for Financial Planning.
