FreeFrom is a grassroots national organization in the United States, the first and only one of its kind, whose mission is to make long-term safety and freedom affordable for survivors of domestic violence so that they can build lives free from violence for themselves and their children. We help survivors of domestic violence to hold their abusers financially accountable through legal services and advocacy work. And we help to build survivor-owned, survivor-operated small businesses.
