YWCA announces partnership to help domestic violence victims


The YWCA of Greater Lawrence has announced a partnership with Budget Buddies to provide financial education to survivors of domestic violence who are living at the YWCA’s Fina House. Budget Buddies is a Massachusetts-based nonprofit organization focused on improving the financial literacy of low-income women in Greater Lowell. Through the new partnership, volunteer coaches will attend biweekly evening workshops, helping women gain financial knowledge and confidence with a focus on money management. Workshops will run from October to March. Volunteer coaches are needed and no special skills are required; training will be provided through information sessions being held 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday and on Sept. 10.
