THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

Most of you know that I am an advocate for children who have been subject to abuse and neglect.  These children are in custody of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. Domestic violence IS child abuse!  The trauma that a child experiences when observing domestic violence in the home is immense and forever changes the very chemistry in that child's brain.  I've seen it first hand.  It's heartbreaking.

When I heard Fr. Charles Dahm, who leads the Archdiocese of Chicago Domestic Violence Outreach, speak at my church about five years ago I knew that domestic violence victim advocacy and community awareness about domestic violence (Yes, it happens "here") was going to be an extension of my passion for child advocacy.  I knew that if I was to sleep well at night, I needed to help others find rest.

The Purple Purse campaign is just one way that I can do some part in helping victims of domestic violence, some men...but mostly women and children, find shelter and support amidst unimaginable turmoil.  

Please help me support WINGS with your donation.

With great appreciation,

Terri
