Our Approach

FreeFrom is a national organization, based in Los Angeles, whose mission is to dismantle the nexus between intimate partner violence and financial insecurity. FreeFrom believes in the creativity, resourcefulness, and power that each survivor has to achieve financial independence and to build communities that support individual, intergenerational and collective healing. We also believe that intimate partner violence is a systemic problem in our society which we are severely lacking the infrastructure to address. FreeFrom’s work is to create that infrastructure, by:

  • growing the capacity of the anti-violence movement;

  • building tech resources for survivors;

  • creating peer networks that foster survivors’ collective power;

  • changing existing laws and advocating for the passage of new and survivor-centered laws at the state and federal level;

  • expanding the data and research that exists to support the field;

  • and bringing in employers, banks, and other institutions as part of the ecosystem working to support survivor’s financial security and safety.
