Behavioral Health Network, Inc. (BHN) has been awarded a $10,000 grant from PeoplesBank to be used for BHN’s Money School program, a financial independence initiative for survivors of domestic or sexual violence who are also recovering from addiction.
PeoplesBank’s grant to BHN will support the operation of the Elizabeth Freeman Center’s Money School program. Money School is an award-winning, trauma-informed financial independence initiative designed to create long-term safety and economic security for survivors.
Participants are given individually-tailored financial and career mentoring as well as intensive advocacy and support for their substance use recovery and healing in the aftermath of domestic or sexual violence. The program helps survivors achieve and maintain safety, economic independence, and family wellbeing for themselves and their children.
