THE STORY:

For my friends & loved ones - Thank you for taking the time to stop by and contribute to a cause that is very important to me. Volunteering has been a new found passion that I must share with everyone!!! I am so grateful for all the support, it will really make a difference. Have a great October! Fundraising - October 1st through October 27th!!! Hello, For the second year in a row, the House of Ruth was selected by the Allstate Foundation to join the national Purple Purse Fundraising Challenge to spotlight financial abuse as a growing form of domestic violence. We are one of over 160 domestic violence organizations across the country competing to raise the most money and awareness towards this cause! It is one thing for survivors of domestic violence to escape a physically abusive relationship; many of them are left with scars that are a visible reminder of what they endured. But financial abuse is the invisible scar that damages a survivor's economic well being. Once victims do break free from a violent household, they are left without any financial means to support themselves or their children. Their credit is ruined, their job has been compromised, and their personal property has been destroyed. For many survivors, years of conditioning reinforced their belief that they are unable to manage money. How do survivors of financial abuse begin to build, or re-build, a sense of financial literacy that will allow them to navigate this complex financial world we live in? House of Ruth is committed to ending all forms of domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, we dedicate our mission to this national campaign by competing in this fundraising challenge to strengthen the way we engage others about the topic of financial abuse. From emergency and transitional housing to prevention, outreach, and children's programming, every survivor that comes to House of Ruth is given the time to heal and to begin again. Our goal in helping them understand the cycle of violence includes conversations about financial abuse and how to build a path towards self-sufficiency. WE NEED YOU TO HELP US STRENGTHEN OUR ADVOCACY AND SERVICES BY DONATING TO OUR PURPLE PURSE CHALLENGE! - Vanessa Boites
