One in four women in the U.S. experiences domestic violence in her lifetime; And nearly 75 percent of all Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim.
Domestic violence advocates and lawmakers have partnered for decades to boost both education and federal funding to combat abuse—but public resources alone are not enough.
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, please support the Jenesse Center by making a donation to their Purple Purse Challenge.
Offering 35 years of life-saving services, Jenesse Center Inc. is a nationally recognized non-profit domestic violence prevention and intervention organization. Jenesse works locally, nationally and globally to shine a light on violence against women, girls, men and boys and advocates the basic human right for all people to have peace in their homes and relationships.
Jenesse's culturally sensitive programs and services not only transition families from crisis to self-sufficiency, but transforms the lives of its clients and the community at large by offering education, referrals and resources that go beyond shelter. Housing women and children from 30 days up to two years through its emergency and transitional shelters, Jenesse also provides a variety of support services, including mental health counseling, independent life skills classes, computer training, job referrals, after school programs for children, field trips, tutoring and comprehensive, direct legal services.
Jenesse takes a proactive stance in educating young people to learn what healthy relationships look like and works to break the generational cycle of violence.
