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.

Trying to understand the stock market/economic disconnect? Stop.

You were not brought upon this world to get it!”As U.S. equities continue their relentless march higher, the question reverberating from all corners of the investment world is, “How can the stock market completely decouple itself from economic reality in what is really just the first couple of innings of the COVID crisis?” It has been said that stocks are pricing in a perfect, V-shaped recovery. However, unless you are Larry Kudlow or Steve Mnuchin being shoved out of the White House to spread the message that all is well, there really does not seem to be too many takers of that prediction. Moreover, it really seems to us that we are backing into the V-shaped recovery scenario to explain what is happening with stocks, rather than the other way around.There really has not been any credible analysis that we have seen to show that a V-shaped recovery is coming. Rather, most analysis, as highlighted by the Federal Reserve in the past few weeks, points to a long, difficult road ahead with regard to economic recovery. Moreover, pronouncements from both corporate and private business leaders predict that major sectors of our economy are going to have to reshape themselves to operate in the world of COVID. Unfortunately, almost of all of the reshaping is negative for economic growth. For instance, this from the Wall Street Journal with regard to something even our grandparents probably took for granted, “Elevator Travel.”last_img read more
