Our work responds to the fact
that Kentucky has a rate of domestic and sexual violence that is higher than
the national average, affecting women, men and children from all walks of
life. According to a study released by
the CDCs National Center for Injury Prevention and Control in 2011, Kentucky is
ranked 11th in the nation for its percentage of women experiencing partner
violence and 16th in the nation for rape prevalence by all perpetrators.
Economic empowerment has been an important part of domestic violence work since financial independence is often the key in helping a victim leave her abuser. KCADV’s Economic Empowerment program helps survivors obtain financial independence through financial education, credit counseling, microloans and asset-building tools such asIndividual Development Accounts. In 2014, we launched a partnership with the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS) extending our self-sufficiency services to 1,000 Ready to Work students (74% report being survivors of domestic violence).
