Moving Ahead

The Allstate Foundation Moving Ahead Program offers a range of information from basic money and financial management principles to advanced, long-term financial planning. This comprehensive package of tools and information is designed to empower women* and victims of domestic violence to be self-sufficient with their finances and become financially independent.

The following are the topics covered in the program:

  • Budgeting Saving Strategies
  • Loan and Housing Options
  • Investment and Insurance Overview
  • Credit Basics and Credit Repair
  • Matched Savings Program (Available at some shelters)

We offer workshops for domestic violence shelters, women’s* shelters, and individuals outside of shelters.

Email movingahead@ywca-berkeley.org for more information and to sign up for our workshops.

*Our use of “girls” and “women” is inclusive of all cis and trans women, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender queer, and any female-identified folks.
