THE STORY:

Imagine living in a place where you had no control of your own finances... no resources, and no way out.  Then imagine that a place came along that offered to help you escape and heal from the violence FOR FREE.  That place is The Retreat, they have services like counseling, legal advocacy, 24 hour hotline, education, and even a emergency shelter.

Help us raise money for this amazing organization so they can keep their services free for those who need it!

About The Retreat:

Our core services include a residential shelter, a 24/7 domestic violence crisis hotline, individual and group counseling, legal advocacy, and a violence prevention education program taught in local area schools. All services are provided free of charge.

In addition to these core services, The Retreat offers programs including:

A self-sufficiency program for clients that includes finance management, personal development and job placement

An initiative that works with fathers to prevent family violence and help them get back on their feet

Classes to promote healthy relationships among teenagers

Rental assistance to families escaping domestic violence

Collaborative efforts to serve domestic violence victims with mental illness

An anti-violence reeducation program for offenders

Programs that address campus security, sexual harassment and transportation issues

A partnership to prevent sexual violence against youth

Funds raised from the Purple Purse Challenge will benefit these core services so that we may continue to provide them free of charge to all of our clients.
