Abuse is hard to talk about, and so is financial abuse
The tactics abusers use to keep victims feeling trapped, like restricting their access to credit cards or legal and financial support.
98 percent of all domestic violence cases involve financial abuse, so it's a huge reason for why women stay in abusive relationships and why they go back after they leave," "They feel they don't have the tools to take care of themselves and their families."
The Allstate Purple Purse challenge is a fundraiser benefiting victims of domestic violence and their families. At SafeQuest all the monies collected will go directly to these victims of domestic violence , help us give them back their self-esteem by providing the necessary tools to help them get back on their feet .
