Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence awarded $54,000 to help build financial security

first_imgFinancial security and access to resources is the number one predictor of whether domestic violence victims will stay or leave an abusive relationship, according to recent research. A new partnership between The Allstate Foundation and the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence will make that choice a little easier. The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence Program will award $54,000 to the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence to support economic empowerment strategies for survivors.The financial impact for a domestic violence survivor can last for years while the survivor works to repair or build credit, build assets and secure housing, childcare and transportation. In its fifth year, the Moving Ahead Economic Empowerment Grantprogram provides funding in the areas of financial education, job readiness and training, match savings programs or individual development accounts (IDA) and micro-loans, helping survivors on their path to financial security.”Survivors need access to information and strategies that this grant program provides now more than ever to help them on their path to financial freedom,” said Jennifer Kuhn, program manager for The Allstate Foundation’s Domestic Violence Program. “The current economic climate demands that financial empowerment services be provided on the local level. The Allstate Foundation is proud to support these efforts and help make financial security a reality for many survivors.”The Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence will use the funding for financial literacy, job readiness and job training, matched savings and micro-loans. The financial literacy program develops the knowledge and skills for advocates and provides both one-on-one and group support for survivors’ emergent economic needs and subsequent plans for long-term safety and economic security.The grant program has provided more than $575,000 to ten state domestic violence coalitions this year. As a part of The Allstate Foundation’s commitment to ending domestic violence, the Moving Ahead Grant programs have provided more than$15 million in programming and direct support since their inception.About The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence ProgramThe Allstate Foundation’s Domestic Violence Program helps domestic violence survivors overcome economic challenges and lead financially independent lives, free from abuse. Through a partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, the program provides a network of financial resources, including a comprehensive financial empowerment curriculum; funds direct services, including education and job training assistance; and spreads the word on how to empower those touched by domestic and economic abuse.

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger exits game after being hit by a pitch on his knee

first_imgINJURY UPDATESRich Hill will pitch four innings in a rehabilitation start for advanced Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday in Lake Elsinore. The left-hander has been sidelined since spring training due to a strained left knee.Hill had the option of pitching for Double-A Tulsa or Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he opted to stay in California due to inclement weather across the midwest. He did not view the prospect of pitching to lower competition as a deterrent.“I’m not going to change the way I pitch,” Hill said, “or it’s not going to give me any different read on the competition, because I think the read is really just the intensity. If the intent doesn’t change, then the variable of competition in my mind shouldn’t be a factor. If you see the stuff is there, if it plays here, in Triple-A, independent baseball, wherever it is, why shouldn’t it play the same? That makes the most sense to me.”It hasn’t been determined whether Hill will need an additional rehab start after Wednesday. Whether it’s Hill or Hyun-Jin Ryu (on the injured list with a strained groin) who returns first, Julio Urías will be bumped from the rotation.Urías’ next start – he’s lined up to pitch Wednesday against the Reds – will not determine when he is replaced.“I expect Julio to pitch well,” Roberts said, “but I don’t think that will affect our decision to keep him in the rotation.”Ryu threw a 40-pitch bullpen on Monday. The next step in his rehab process also remains to be determined.BARNES-ATHONAustin Barnes entered Monday’s game in need of a breather.Related Articles As A.J. Pollock batted against Castillo, Bellinger took advantage of every opportunity to flex his leg. He jogged after each foul ball.“After the inning ended,” Bellinger said, “we both decided that it was probably better to get treatment and see how I feel (Tuesday).”Bellinger began the day leading the National League in home runs (nine), runs batted in (22) and batting average (.424). His RBI double in the first inning gave him at least one hit in each of the Dodgers’ 11 home games this season.Put mildly, the x-ray results were a relief for Bellinger and his teammates.“It hit me in a good spot to get hit,” he said after the game. “It still definitely hurts, nothing serious, and wake up (Tuesday), see how I feel.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies LOS ANGELES — Dodgers right fielder Cody Bellinger left Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds when his knee was struck by a pitch, but x-rays were negative and he was diagnosed with a contusion.With one out and a runner on base in the third inning, Bellinger was struck on the side of his right knee by a 95-mph fastball from Reds starter Luis Castillo. He immediately crumpled to the ground, prompting a visit from Manager Dave Roberts and soft tissue specialist Yosuke Nakajima.Bellinger walked halfway down the first-base line with a pronounced limp, then stopped. He limped the rest of the way to first base, then jogged a bit, but couldn’t shake the pain. Roberts and Nakajima departed, and Bellinger took his base.“I was walking to first and I could touch it, walk on it, knew it wasn’t broken,” he said. “It was maybe just one of the things I could walk off maybe, and after a few times running feel better.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Backup Rocky Gale had caught only seven innings since he was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, when Russell Martin was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain. Barnes had caught 28 innings in a row.The added workload seemed to be taking its toll. Barnes was 2 for 14 with no extra-base hits, no walks, and four strikeouts coming into Monday’s game. Roberts said he planned to give Barnes the day off Tuesday and have Gale catch Kenta Maeda.“This pace that he’s on, I don’t see us trying to push him to that,” Roberts said of Barnes. “Austin’s done a great job. (Sunday) the sequencing, the fingers he was putting down with (Ross Stripling) was impressive. They were in-sync. I think his at-bat quality was really good as well.”last_img read more
