FTB teams up with YWCA in support of domestic violence victims

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.
