FTB teams up with YWCA in support of domestic violence victims

Posted: Updated:

Fifth Third Bank Women's Financial Network is coordinating and teaching Economic Empowerment Sessions at the YWCA for victims of domestic violence.

Research shows that nearly 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence and lacking financial knowledge are the main reasons why victims return or remain in relationships with their abusers.

Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., members of the Women's Financial Network will present these sessions at the YWCA located at 118 Vine St. in Downtown Evansville. These sessions help survivors build their financial skills as a way to escape abusive relationships, get safe, stay safe and thrive.
