HEAT Force (Housing and Economic Advocacy Taskforce)

The HEAT Force combines the efforts of both service-providing and policy-research non-profits in order to give low-income women and domestic abuse survivors more financial opportunities. It will also give these women and domestic violence advocates the skills they need to influence local and federal policies regarding housing and economic assistance. The HEAT Force will hold webinars that will give advocates better knowledge of things like affordable housing, welfare and public speaking. It will also provide women and girls with classes on how to recognize and avoid financial abuse and manage money responsibly.
