DID YOU KNOW:
- 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
- Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women – more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
- The number one reason for a woman to remain in or return to an abusive relationship is financial dependence.
- 1/2 of all homeless women and children in the U.S. are fleeing from domestic violence.
We are participating in the Purple Purse Challenge to raise funds for programs that help victims of domestic violence become survivors. This includes immediate physical safety, interim security and long term financial sustainability for a life free of violence.
Our Foundation also strives to break the cycle of violence in future generations.
We support programs for children exposed to domestic violence and we further work to break the cycle of violence by promoting healthy teen relationships and financial literacy among teenagers.
