The Increasing Economic Opportunity for Battered Women newsletter is a forum for sharing ways that domestic violence programs are responding to the economic issues facing battered women, particularly those living in poverty.
The July 2001, (Volume 2, Number 2) third issue, "Welfare-to-Work Programs Create Options for Battered Women," explores how welfare-to-work programs can help battered women. It highlights welfare-to-work programs that provide specialized services to battered women, including a statewide pilot project in Kentucky, a community college funded initiative in Texas, and an experiential learning course developed by a transitional housing program in Maine. Also included is a list of Internet resources designed to increase understanding of this complex system.
This newsletter is published as part of the Building Comprehensive Solutions to Domestic Violence initiative, a project of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.
