THE STORY:

Start Out Fresh Intervention Advocates (fondly referred to as S.O.F.I.A.) is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that provides advocacy, supportive, financial services and referrals for temporary housing to “at risk” women and children of domestic violence. Our mission is help each of our domestic violence victim and survivor clients become self-sufficient, positive and successful.1 in 4 women report experiencing domestic violence in their lifetimes.Domestic violence and financial abuse often go hand-in-hand, but 8 in 10 Americans have not heard about financial abuse as a form of domestic violence. The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay, leave or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free.S.O.F.I.A.'s mission involves encouraging others to support domestic violence awareness and offering support and assistance to victims, survivors and their families.  Our focus is to create social change, thus leading to the eradication of domestic violence. Founder, Cynthia Walker and the S.O.F.I.A. Team are passionate about promoting healthy relationships by reaching out to children, teens and adults. Our S.O.F.I.A. Success Center is a facility wherein we offer a variety of free programs focused on educating and empowering women, children and the community on topics such as financial literacy and self-motivation. In addition to our "Soar to Success" programs, S.O.F.I.A. offers safe dating workshops for teens, "Superhero"workshops for children and support groups for women. We partner with organizations whose goals are to inspire, uplift and educate.  Your participation in the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge is greatly appreciated and much needed for change, development and financial empowerment within our families and communities. Funds raised will support life-changing financial empowerment services to help domestic violence survivors build safer lives for themselves and their families. Donations can be made through this fundraiser from October 2nd to  October 31st 2017 at 1:59:59 p.m. ET. If you or someone you know needs immediate help, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or TTY 1-800-787-3224. If you or someone you know has been affected by domestic violence and is seeking healing through a creative process or assistance, please contact S.O.F.I.A. to find out how we can be of assistance. We are currently based in Essex County, New Jersey.Thank you in advance for your support! S.O.F.I.A P.O. Box 674 Montclair, New Jersey 07042 (862) 251-6791or info@supportsofia.org
