Shelter House is continuing financial education and economic empowerment workshops thanks to a $30,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation.
The funds allow the nonprofit and community partners like Wells Fargo to work with domestic violence survivors on budgeting, building savings and repairing credit scores through economic empowerment courses. Shelter House also teaches abuse survivors’ children about how to handle their finances.
As part of the grant, Shelter House annually presents the Women and Money Economic Empowerment Conference, bringing together local experts and nationally renowned speakers for a day of workshops. The fourth annual conference will take place Feb. 22, 2014, at the Northwest Florida State College Costa Leadership Institute.
