FreeFrom Launches National Train the Trainer Program

In order to efficiently scale and integrate our work into the domestic violence movement, FreeFrom has developed a Train the Trainer Program: The Survivor Wealth and Wellness Certification Program.

The training equips domestic violence organizations to offer income building, credit repair and protection, and pathways to financial security as part of their day-to-day services for survivors.

Its methodology is survivor-centered and trauma-informed and designed to support the trainee in building up their own financial capacity, so they can authentically approach this work from a place of confidence and abundance.

Trainees complete a series of online modules in conjunction with one-on-one financial coaching with the FreeFrom team. They are then supported with a year of technical assistance that includes: legal consultation services for survivor small business and credit needs; quarterly online learning and partner community building opportunities; and access to curriculum & resources used throughout the training.
