Economic abuse impacts the lives of most, if not all, survivors of domestic violence. Bradley Angle’s Economic Empowerment Program helps survivors rebuild their financial security. Our services include:

Individual Development Accounts

*NOTE: The IDA program is temporarily unavailable due to a funding shortage at Casa of Oregon. We will update this page as soon as we learn that the situation has changed.

Multiply your savings! Save up to $925 and end up with $3,700 through an Individual Development Account (IDA). Bradley Angle IDAs must be used for one of these four purposes: education, work-related, vehicle, and rental move-in costs.

IDAs are made possible through the Assets for Independence Act, Oregon IDA 75% Tax Credit, Neighborhood Partnerships, and CASA of Oregon. Applicants need to be an Oregon resident, have earned income (limits apply), or be receiving TANF or SSI/SSDI. 

Matched Savings Accounts

Bradley Angle’s matched savings program matches every dollar you save up to $350, giving you $700 to use. Complete our Making Cent$ course and work with an advocate to get to your savings goal twice as fast.
