THE STORY:

START OUT FRESH INTERVENTION ADVOCATES wrote -

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.  

Founder, Cynthia Walker and the S.O.F.I.A. Team strive to promote healthy relationships by reaching out to children, teens and adults. S.O.F.I.A. has presented to over 2,800 individuals by holding support groups and presenting workshops focused on bullying, self defense, healing, empowerment and much more. In addition, we hold meetings with men in our community through our M.A.D.V. (Men Against Domestic Violence) group and 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. The program ignites fundraising for more than 140 national, state and local domestic violence organizations. Funds raised will support life-changing financial empowerment services to help domestic violence survivors build safer lives for themselves and their families. We offer financial literacy and motivational  empowerment at the S.O.F.I.A. Success Center. 

If you or someone you know needs immediate help, 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, 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!
