Elizabeth Freeman Center's financial independence series for people impacted by domestic or sexual violence will offer its second year of classes starting mid-March.

"Money School" is a five week series for survivors that covers topics like rebuilding credit, accessing benefits, building supports, getting by now, and action planning.

It was created through a partnership between Elizabeth Freeman Center and the American Institute for Economic Research.

A $125 stipend will be offered, as well as free dinner, child care, one-on-one financial coaches from local banks, networking with other resource providers in the community, and ongoing support.

The first series of five workshops will run Tuesdays, March 15 to April 12, in Pittsfield. The second and third series will be held in Great Barrington and again in Pittsfield starting in late April. All workshops are from 5 from 8 p.m.

To register for any of the series, contact Donna at Elizabeth Freeman Center, 413-499-2425, ext. 613, or donnal@elizabethfreemancenter.org.
