BENEFITING: YWCA Northeastern NY

EVENT: Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge

EVENT DATE: Sep 02, 2014

THE STORY:

Economic Abuse=Trapped in an Abusive Relationship

Crash…silence….sobbing and screams, “Please don’t hit me again!”..”YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WORK TONIGHT!” He screams as he plants his finger in her face.

Clutching her favorite teddy bear,she peeks around the corner of the doorway from her bedroom. Checking to see if Mommy is okay. Being very careful not to get caught by daddy. FEAR AND SADNESS gripping 6 year old Sarah AGAIN tonight. Why won’t someone help my Mommy?    

Strutting around in his superman pj’s he strolls over to Sarah, “Get to Bed or I will hit you!” The innocence of 8 year old Tommy has been stripped. He has to maintain a tough exterior because the FEAR he feels inside makes him feel helpless. He should be able to protect his Mommy. He can’t. Instead all he knows how to do is what has been modeled to him…Show dominance to instill FEAR and get what you want!

Domestic Violence hurts EVERYONE in the home…and community

Schools see Bullies and absences

Employers see absences and lower productivity

Emergency ResponseTeams see increased calls

ER's become crowded

Child Psychiatrist and counselors have long waiting lists

School violence is increased

What you have just witnessed is the Cycle of Abuse. You have the power to help little Sarahs and Tommys in your community break the cycle and create a bright future story free from Fear and Abuse. When you donate to the YWCA NORTHEASTRN NY you are helping Mommies get help and support so that the children can grow in a safe and thriving home.

ALL DONATIONS AND SUPPORT HELP CREATE FUTURE STORIES FREE FROM ABUSE!

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” 
― Francis of Assisi
