Redevelopment Opportunities for Women Economic Action Program
This project assessed the Redevelopment Opportunities for Women Economic Action Program (REAP), which develops economic services, including an Individual Development Accout program, for low-income battered women in the St. Louis region. The study explored the role of financial and economic factors in domestic violence by conducting in-depth interviews with women who participated in REAP. Findings suggest that most participants had experienced some level of economic abuse. Participants reported developing a greater sense of financial self-efficacy as a result of the program.
