BSAFE® is a matched savings account, also known as an Individual Development Account (IDA) Program, for domestic violence survivors with low to moderate incomes. BSAFE® was designed to help survivors establish a pattern of regular saving and, ultimately, reach a specific financial goal.
BSAFE® savings and match money can be used to buy a house, pay for education, or start a small business.

*Note: The terminology "she" or "her " will be used throughout this website to refer to domestic violence survivors. This choice of language reflects the fact that the overwhelming majority of domestic violence victims are women. This does not mean that there are not male victims, or that they should not receive the same supportive services. This should also not be used to exclude children or other victims in the household
