Joined March 2019

FreeFrom's mission is to create pathways to financial security and long-term safety for survivors of intimate partner and gender based violence.

Presence in: United States
Focus: Access to Information, Economic Empowerment, Family, Gender-based violence, Women's Rights

FreeFrom endeavors to make safety affordable for all survivors of intimate partner and gender based violence so that they can build lives free from abuse for themselves and their children.

Our work is designed to democratize access to financial programming and tools that support survivors’ healing and disrupt the dominant paradigm of what constitutes, and who is entitled to, wealth in the United States. Information is power. Access to financial resources is safety and healing for survivors. FreeFrom is innovating the domestic violence movement in the United States by treating economic justice as healing justice.
