BENEFITING: DELAWARE COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2016
Delaware Purple Purse Challenge wrote -
Hundreds of domestic violence victims throughout Delaware now have the opportunity to earn and save money, improve their credit, and become financially savvy and empowered as they rebuild lives for themselves and their families. With funding from The Allstate Foundation, a collaboration of Delaware nonprofit organizations is addressing the number one reason victims remain trapped with their abusers: financial instability. Victims escaping dangerous relationships and seeking shelter and other domestic violence services from CHILD, Inc. in New Castle County and People’s Place in Kent and Sussex Counties now not only feel safer, but also more financially secure.
The economic empowerment work has made a huge difference, but each year, we're working with less and less funding. For this year, our grant was cut by $5,000, so we hope to make it up (and then some!) with this challenge.
While DCADV, CHILD, Inc, and People's Place have joined forces for this challenge, donations will be directed to the organization of your choosing. Any donations without a designation will be divided evenly amongst the organizations.
