I'm fundraising for the Purple Purse Challenge to benefit Artemis House and raise awareness of domestic violence!
Did you know that domestic violence is the leading cause of homicide in Fairfax County?
Artemis House is the only 24-hour emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence in Fairfax County. We served 326 people during FY2015. Due to our limited bed space at Artemis House we are only able to serve victims of domestic violence who are in imminent danger, meaning they have a high likelihood of being killed. Last year we had to turn away 228 households who could have benefitted from a domestic violence shelter, but were not in imminent danger... yet.
Please donate to help me meet my fundraising goal! Your donation will help provide families at Artemis House with basic needs- a warm bed, soap, food, and so much more!
