BENEFITING: FAMILY SERVICES OF TULARE COUNTY
ORGANIZER: FAMILY SERVICES OF TULARE COUNTY
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
Help me support Karen's House, Family Services' 30-bed domestic violence shelter for women and children! One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Join Family Services and The Allstate Foundation to raise money for safe shelter and comprehensive support services that can give hope and transform lives.
Why a Purple Purse?
The primary reason many domestic violence survivors stay in or go back to an abusive relationship is because they don't have the financial resources to break free and stay free. The purple purse is symbolic because purple is the color for domestic violence awareness and a purse represents a woman's financial domain. Financial empowerment is a critical component of the comprehensive services Family Services offers to the survivors we work with at Karen's House and in the community.
