Thank you to the Allstate Foundation! The Allstate Foundation will fund our Economic Advancement program to implement their Moving Ahead curriculum, a five-module program that has been academically validated to help prepare survivors as they move from short-term safety to long-term security.

Here’s some information about the grant and how we’ve implemented the Moving Ahead curriculum into our programming:

· YWCA Evanston/North Shore was one of two sites selected for the $25,000 grant

· We have implemented the Allstate Moving Ahead curriculum in our Financial Wellness programming for survivors for 15 years

· Receiving the funding will support our Financial Wellness team with enhancing the efforts they’re currently providing to help empower survivors and support them with reaching financial stability
