THE STORY:

For the past 35 years, Renewal House has striven to respond immediately to the needs of domestic violence victims and their families all across St. Lawrence County, by providing them with individual advocacy, peer to peer counseling, education, case management, and emergency crisis support.  


Covering over 2,800 square miles, St. Lawrence County is the largest and most rural county in New York State. According to 2015 US Census data, approximately 20% of St. Lawrence County’s population lives below the federal poverty line. That’s nearly 5% higher than the national average. Women age 18 to 24 account for the largest demographic living in poverty within the county. Moreover, according to data collected by the National Crime Victimization Survey, women age 18 to 24 are also most likely to be victimized by an intimate partner.
 

The clear link between poverty and domestic violence is undeniable. According to a study released by the Allstate Foundation, in 99% of domestic violence cases, victims reported experiencing some form financial abuse. This often meant being denied access to direct and indirect financial resources—things like money, credit cards, bank statements, and budgeting skills—needed to break free from the violence. Financial abuse is one of the primary reasons domestic violence victims stay in or return to abusive relationships. Without financial resources of their own, victims are often unable to provide for themselves and their families, secure safe housing, or save for the future.  


Renewal House believes that addressing financial abuse and encouraging economic empowerment is essential to the healing process, helping individuals move from domestic violence victim, to survivor, to “thriver”. We are proud to celebrate 35 years of serving victims and couldn’t do this work as well as we do without the continued support and generosity of community members like you. 


Renewal House has been given the honor to participate in this year's Purple Purse Challenge. Funds raised will go to directly to support domestic violence victims in St. Lawrence County overcome the impact of financial abuse. Financial abuse is often referred to as the silent weapon in domestic violence relationships. Help us break the silence and become a donor today!
