Not all abuse is visible. Allstate Foundation Purple Purse has teamed up with tennis champion and Allstate Foundation Purple Purse ambassador Serena Williams to raise awareness of financial abuse -- a type of abuse that happens in 99% of domestic violence cases. Yet, nearly 50% of Americans don’t know about it. Empower victims in your community by donating through through our Allstate Foundation #PurplePurseChallenge Fundraiser at Crowdrise.com/SCCADVASA now through October 31st! #DVAM2018
Who We Are
SCCADVASA is the statewide coalition of organizations providing intervention services to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and Primary Prevention programs to students and communities across the state.
We work towards ending domestic and sexual violence in South Carolina and beyond through engaging individuals and communities in advocacy, collaboration and education. We advocate for the transformative social change that will result in a society free of violence, push for policy changes that support survivors, and provide education and technical assistance to build the capacity of our members, allied organizations and communities to provide trauma-informed and survivor-centered services.
Our hope is for community in which prevention work is our focus—a commitment to prevent sexual and domestic violence from occurring in the first place—where we can center our work on the building of healthy relationship practices rather than the aftermath of violence. Everyone has the right to live in a community where respect and trust form the core of relationships and fear has no place to thrive.
