The Allstate Foundation Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum
“Lack of financial knowledge and resources are the main reasons why victims of domestic violence return to or remain in relationships with their abusers.” (The Allstate Foundation, 2010)
In 2005, The Allstate Foundation joined with the National Network to End Domestic Violence Inc. (NNEDV) and state domestic violence coalitions to provide a comprehensive network of resources and direct services to help economically empower survivors of domestic violence.
The Allstate Foundation’s work to support survivors of domestic violence reflects Allstate’s commitment to making our communities and our nation a better, safer place to live. Our Moving Ahead Grant Programs, public awareness campaigns and leadership development efforts are helping to end domestic violence. We are committed to using economic empowerment strategies to end the cycle of violence because research shows that economic dependency is the strongest predictor of a survivor’s decision to remain, leave or return to an abusive relationship – even stronger than physical safety issues.

The member projects have trained staff who are ready to help survivors of domestic violence achieve economic self-sufficiency through education and support.
