Economic Empowerment of Survivors

This project builds upon the previous evaluation conducted by the Center on Violence Against Women & Children (VAWC) at Rutgers University, School of Social Work to accomplish a multi-year experimental, longitudinal design to determine the impact of the Moving Ahead through Financial Management curriculum with survivors of violence.  Survivors were assigned to either an experimental group (receiving advocacy services and the curriculum during group and individual sessions) or a control group (receiving advocacy services only).  All survivors, recruited on an ongoing basis from 14 domestic violence organizations from 7 states and Puerto Rico, were interviewed four times over a 14 month period.
