THE STORY:

Domestic Violence affects 1 in 4 women in her lifetime--yet it's difficult to talk about. BCFR is participating in the Purple Purse campaign to raise awareness and educate the community on financial abuse as a control tactic for abusers.

Many victims remain in abusive relationships due to financial abuse. 98% of victims are trapped in a dangerous situation due to limited access to credit and money.  Without access to money and resources victims are unable to care for themselves and families independently.  

On an average day, nearly 11,000 requests for emergency shelter, childcare and other services go unanswered due to a lack of fnding at domestic violence nonprofits around the country.  Even as demand for services increases, these programs continue to operate with limited resources.  This is true for BCFR as well, as a result fo the budget cuts we have had to scale back our programming.  

The monies raised by BCFR's Purple Purse Campaign will be used to supplement our domestic violence program and help us meet the needs of victims in Houston County.  

Thank you for helping us continue to do the work we do.
