This App Helps Survivors Of Domestic Violence Get Economic Justice

The Compass works by first asking a few logistical questions — including where the user lives, how quickly they need the money, and how comfortable they feel talking about their experiences. It then assigns the individual a Compensation Mindset, which is an assessment of the survivor’s goals and objectives in pursuing compensation and what kind best suits them, from criminal restitution to small claims court. From here, the tool provides the user with step-by-step, state-specific details about how to seek the suggested means of compensation, as well as deadlines, eligibility information, fillable PDFs and applications, and what to expect in terms of challenges that might come up along the way.
