A person who has left an unsafe environment with a volatile partner may find that they face a new set of problems. For some, they have suddenly lost the main source of their financial security. In fleeing the domestic abuse situation, a person can be crippled by the loss of income and stability. One Florida program aims to aid women who have left violent partners by helping them prepare for their own economic stability.

One Florida social worker even believes that domestic violence has reached epidemic proportions, and so supports a new federal bill that would prevent a domestic abuser's access to guns. The social worker shares domestic violence facts and education in a recent news article.
