Nov 2, 2017

--Lutheran Settlement House recognizes Ellis for outstanding support of domestic violence survivors and financial counsel provided during Economic Justice Workshops--

Erin Ellis, Accredited Financial Counselor at Philadelphia Federal Credit Union (PFCU), received the Community Partner Advocacy Award at the Lutheran Settlement House’s ¡Salud! Celebration to honor domestic violence survivors and community partners on Thursday, October 26 in Fishtown. Since September 2015, Ellis has provided financial counsel to women during Economic Justice Workshops hosted by the organization.

Ellis first became involved with the Lutheran Settlement House as a way to support the Fishtown community. Through her participation in multiple Economic Justice Workshops, Ellis has taught financial lessons on credit and banking and has equipped women with the skills necessary to be financially independent – an important factor in surviving domestic violence.

“It’s empowering to speak with women in a collaborative environment to share experiences and resources,” said Ellis. “I’m truly humbled to accept the Community Partner Advocacy Award and look forward to my continued partnership with the Lutheran Settlement House.”
