On Wednesday October 19th, I will be participating in a fund raising walk to raise funds for the organizations that support victims of domestic violence and abuse. The walk is a part of Allstate’s Purple Purse program, which is a national program with the same purpose.
I am asking for donations to support me on this walk. One of our local organizations that provides services to the survivors of domestic abuse is the Heartly House.
From their website:
Heartly House, Inc., has been serving victims of intimate partner abuse, rape/sexual assault, and child abuse for over 30 years. We also serve secondary victims such as family members, spouses, friends, and significant others. Anyone supporting a victim of abuse who needs support or guidance can receive services at Heartly House.
Services include: a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, individual and group counseling, victim advocate services and legal representation, medical advocacy, abuse intervention groups, and community outreach and professional education.
All services are confidential except in cases of reportable child abuse and threats homicide or suicide. Heartly House services are voluntary. Our clients make the decision regarding whether or not to access our services. Our goal is to provide support, options and referrals.
