The South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault received a grant to cover expenses related to Allstate’s Financial Management Curriculum. They chose 5 member programs around the state, with MEG’s House being one of them. Allstate puts it best when they say, “Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum helps survivors of domestic violence move from safety to long-term security. The curriculum is broken up into 5 topics including: understanding financial abuse, learning financial fundamentals, mastering credit basics, building financial foundations, and creating budgeting strategies.
Dr. Alice Hodges stated that, “I am extremely pleased with this endeavor to help victims of domestic violence and Christina and Candice have done an excellent job coordinating and presenting the curriculum to some of our clients.”
Christina Hjalmer added, “This information has been extremely helpful to our clients in teaching them where to start in setting financial goals for their future.”
