BENEFITING: New Hope Inc
Gabrielle Alan wrote -
New Hope started in southern Massachusetts as a volunteer hotline, addressing the needs of individuals who were fleeing intimate partner violence. New Hope has grown to an organization that provides a full spectrum of services; addressing emergency and trauma needs, long term support for survivors, family reunification, abuser education programming, and most importantly - community education and prevention.
Financial independence is one of the most common reasons that a victim stays in an abusive situation, or returns to one after leaving. Many victims have never had a checking or savings account. All components of our program include a financial literacy assessment, where the client determines needs and goals on the pathway to self sufficiency. The first time that a survivor can save $50.00, is an enlightening moment, allowing for future possibilities and dreams.
New Hope is proud to be a part of the Allstate Purple Purse Campaign. The weekly challenge opportunites remind us, as an agency, about reaching for small goals, and conquering hurdles. It's amazing to have the support of so many members of the community, who make a difference with every dollar raised and donated.
Keep your eyes on New Hope!
We will show you what #HopeLooksLike!
