Emergency Funds for Survivors of Domestic Violence
CADA’s goal is to assist our clients in becoming self-sufficient and more capable to move into stable future lives. Real life examples of fund usage include purchase of gas or u-haul rentals to move to a safer location, short-term hoteling, pet safety and care, back to work fees, legal representation fees, and rental assistance. These financial barriers can prevent someone from being able to leave an abusive relationship. Limited access to money and housing can result in fewer options to find safety and regain independence.
