Week 3 Bonus Challenge | THANK YOU!
October 12, 2016

Yesterday was a great day for us in the Purple Purse Challenge! We asked our donors to help us with the Week 3 Bonus Challenge and we made  See more
The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center

THE STORY:

Our mission is to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence. The Center provides a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week crisis hotline, legal advocacy, emergency and transitional shelter, counseling and support to victims of domestic violence in the communities we serve. Last year, we provided 1,095 victim/survivors with 10,212 confidential services, all free of charge.

According to the Allstate Foundation:

·Domestic violence affects one in four women in her lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined.

·Financial abuse happens in 99% of all domestic violence cases and often times, keeps victims trapped in the abusive relationship.

·The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free.

·Financial abuse prevents victims from acquiring, using or maintaining financial resources. Financial abuse is just as effective in controlling a victim as a lock and key. Abusers employ isolating tactics such as preventing their spouse or partner from working or accessing a bank, credit card or transportation. They might tightly monitor and restrict their partner’s spending. Victims of financial abuse live a controlled life where they have been purposely put into a position of dependence, making it hard for the victim to break free.

Your donations, regardless of size, will directly impact the victims and survivors of domestic violence that we help each day. Thank you for your support of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center in the 2016 Purple Purse Challenge!
