Domestic Violence

Home should always be a safe place to go.

We provide domestic violence survivors the financial skills and tools to break free and stay free from abuse.

Domestic violence is at an epidemic level in this country. One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime – that’s more than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. While most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, financial abuse occurs in 98% of all cases of domestic violence. It’s an invisible weapon that keeps victims trapped in abusive relationships.

Allstate Foundation Purple Purse is bringing financial abuse out of the shadows and using financial empowerment to break the cycle of domestic violence. Together with our partner, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, we provide survivors with access to the financial education and tools they need to stay safe and stand on their own. To date, our work has allowed nearly 800,000 women to take steps toward stronger, happier, domestic violence-free lives. We’ve trained more than 8,600 service providers, representing more than 1,600 nonprofit organizations, to help them deliver best-in-class financial literacy and asset building programs to domestic violence survivors in all 50 states.

Lincoln Salmon is one of many Allstate agency owners that volunteer in the community to help make long term security a reality for survivors. Listen to his story.
