By survivors for survivors, we empower survivors of domestic violence and their families to build the financial security needed to permanently break free from the cycle of abuse, live free from violence, and thrive.
Bottom Line for Portland
Annually, FinAbility’s financial empowerment programming is accessed by over 20,000 survivors of domestic abuse and community members.
Our trauma-informed programming includes our financial toolkit, virtual classes, and 1:1 financial counseling services, which provide lifesaving information about domestic abuse and pathways to achieving financial security.
We work closely with over 15 community organizations, including Raphael House, the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, and the Oregon Bankers Association. Together, we're working towards a safer, brighter Portland.
The FinAbility classes are a much needed support for survivors of domestic abuse. They help to teach and empower survivors to move forward and reach for a stable financial future. The step by step classes helped me to learn a much needed skill and boosted my ability to manage my finances.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Domestic abuse impacts all people and communities, but we understand that it disproportionately impacts those who are marginalized and oppressed. BIPOC and Queer survivors frequently face additional barriers to building the financial stability needed to live free from violence.
At FinAbility, we design our programming to be trauma-informed, survivor-specific, and inclusive by seeking feedback from the communities we serve through focus groups, listening sessions, and the creation of our 8-person Survivor Advisory Committee.
