Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum Grant Program

The Allstate funding has given me the ability to pursue dreams that I thought were lost a long time ago. After finally being able to say I am living a violence-free life I can now also say I am a successful college student and soon a graduate, hopefully with honors. Their help has made me more able to help myself, my family and others."

The Allstate Foundation's Moving Ahead Through Financial Management curriculum empowers survivors to regain control of their finances and to get free and stay free from violence. The curriculum includes financial tools and information that help enable survivors of domestic abuse to fully understand their financial circumstances and to engage in short-term and long-term planning to accomplish their personal goals.

The national Curriculum Grant Program allows Allstate Foundation and the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) to get the curriculum in the hands of as many survivors as possible by working with state domestic violence coalitions to provide training and technical assistance to the local programs that work directly with survivors. Through this grant program, state domestic violence coalitions will receive funding to conduct economic empowerment and curriculum trainings with the local programs in their states.

In the two years since the grant program began, over 1,200 advocates in 500 community-based programs in 33 states have been trained to use the Moving Ahead curriculum with survivors during the first year of the grant program. Additionally, over 25,000 survivors will use the Moving Ahead curriculum in those states during the two year program.
