EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
October is Domestic Violence awareness month...
I personally think it should be EVERYDAY. I grew up in a home dominated by domestic abuse and alcoholism that lead me to run away when I was just 17 years old.
Looking back I wondered when would someone come to help us.
Working as a police officer for many years it also became evident that it is still a huge problem.
When I was growing up, we didn't have or know about foundations that were ready to assist us so maybe things could have been different.
Join me to give to those who need, who are trying to seek help from their circumstances ... anything you donate from your heart, God will get the Glory ...

The goal of this campaign is to continue providing life-saving services to victims of domestic violence. Your donation will directly benefit Empresarias del Futuro/Entrepreneurs of the Future. This innovative program teams with community partners to provide a pathway to economic security to survivors of DV. During this 15-week program, women learn leadership skills, financial education, and small business development with a focus on microenterprise. With the needs of the Latino community at the forefront, classes are offered in Spanish and provide child care onsite. The curriculum has been specially developed for maximum impact among the communities we serve.
