October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we are looking for support from you! Stand united with us this year and join in on the Purple Purse Challenge.
This year through our Purple Purse Challenge we would like to raise awareness of these issues that can affect anyone. The Purple Purse Challenge proceeds will benefit La Casa's financial empowerment program and the comprehensive programs that provide services to over 2000 individuals within Dona Ana County. We have an innovative approach to addressing domestic violence in the community by combating the issues from both sides and providing our services to everyone. At La Casa we believe that every person deserves a safe and healthy relationship.
Since domestic violence affects the whole community, the only way we are going to make progress in the battle to end the violence and abuse is for everyone to come together and address the problem as a community. To that end we are asking neighbors, our friends and our families to each donate towards our Purple Purse Challenge. Every dollar counts your donation of $10-$10,000 helps support the critical services needed in Dona Ana County. Every single dollar helps make our community a safer better place.
