Safety Fund for Survivors of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a societal problem for which we all have collective responsibility. Now more than ever, we must come together as a community to minimize the danger and harm that it causes. Domestic violence incidents are skyrocketing  as a result of COVID-19 and the increased isolation that it has caused. This pandemic has illuminated the lack of infrastructure that we have in the U.S. to support survivors' financial security and long-term safety. FreeFrom is working harder than ever to support survivors and address this systemic issue and we would be so grateful for your help.

All the money raised through this campaign will be used to support as many survivors as we can with $250 grants. Survivors who get these grants are at risk either because they are living with a harm-doer or because they are struggling to make ends meet and may have to return to someone who is harming them. They will be able to use these emergency cash grants to pay for their basic needs - food, rent, medicine, etc. In addition, FreeFrom will support these individuals with optional financial coaching and peer support. 

FreeFrom believes in the creativity, resourcefulness and power that each survivor has to achieve financial independence, and to build communities that support individual, intergenerational and collective healing. Rapid response in times of crisis is one important and urgent way to ensure survivors can heal and thrive long-term. Find out more  about what FreeFrom is doing to build financial wellness and community with and for survivors.
