ABOUT THE ALLSTATE FOUNDATION MOVING AHEAD CURRICULUM
As part of an ongoing, decades-long partnership, The Allstate Foundation, United Way of Metro Chicago and our community partners have teamed up to financially empower survivors of domestic violence and financial abuse. 96% of domestic violence survivors have experienced financial abuse – when someone restricts another person from making, saving or spending money.
