Domestic Violence Recovery Loan Program
The Domestic Violence Recovery (DVR) Loan Program was designed to provide survivors of abuse with an affordable option for removing financial barriers to safety and/or rebuilding after an abusive relationship. This report details the development and initial findings from the implementation of the DVR Loan program from May 2014 through May 2016. Data sources include a survey of survivors, interviews with key informants, participant observations, and program records. As the first program of its kind, the DVR Loan represents a tangible opportunity to serve a severely underserved community and live out the people-helping-people ethos of credit unions.
Filene thanks our generous supporters for making this important research possible.
