Santander is partnering with the NCADV to offer financial education. Access to lessons on skills such as budgeting and finding housing empowers survivors to take back control of their lives and leave their abusers for good. The webinars cover a range of curriculum, from basic money management skills to how to build credit. If you or someone close to you is in need of these resources, you can find them on the previous page.
Another important step in reaching financial self-sufficiency is building credit. That’s why Santander is making a donation to the
NNEDV to help fund and develop their micro-lending program. This project helps survivors improve their credit scores by awarding them microloans of $100 that they pay back with no interest over the course of 10 months. Santander has committed to providing resources and support to evolve this program so that even more survivors can reach financial freedom.
In Someone Else’s Shoes is an initiative created to shed light on people who deserve more respect. When we have the chance to see how other people live, the world becomes a more empathetic, and therefore, respectful place for everyone. That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence NCADV and the National Network to End Domestic Violence NNEDV, to help those affected by domestic violence get the respect that they deserve.
