YWCA Economic Empowerment Program

Our economic empowerment program is designed to assist individuals who are survivors of domestic violence manage their personal finances, identify their interests and skills, and find employment. 

Domestic violence presents itself in a multitude of ways, with one of the most invisible being financial abuse. Some victims will work 40 hours a week and not see a single paycheck as a result of their partner’s control. This program addresses the economic disparities that come with experiences of abuse, and helps clients find access to different avenues of financial health.

Our Economic Empowerment Counselor supports clients in developing their own stability – whether that means assistance in finding their next meal, applying for childcare, applying for food stamps – or whatever the individual situation may be.

This program includes:

  • YW Strive – Free Professional Development Program
  • Assistance with financial planning, budgeting, time management, and goal setting
  • Preparation for job interviews
  • Access to professional clothing for interviews and work through our Soroptimist Closet
  • Computer use assistance
  • Information about continuing education or training
  • Job search tips and techniques
  • Assistance with employment applications, resume, and cover letters
  • Referrals to community agencies
  • And any other avenues of assistance the client needs.
