Women's Resource Center is excited to be a chosen partner of the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge. We have been providing services to Domestic Violence Survivors for over 40 years to survivors in San Diego County.
Financial Abuse is a very common tool used by abusers to create a scenerio that makes it difficult for their partner to leave. Abusers often harass their partner at work to the point they get fired, take out credit cards in their names, refuse to pay bills, and cut off all access to money.
WRC utilizes our program Transitional House to provide survivors the opportunity to repair financial issues, attend school or join the workforce, and start a savings program. It is the goal of our program that after 2 years the survivor and their family will be able to achieve self-sufficiency.
Join WRC and Allstate in the fight against Domestic Violence and support our programs. The first 200 donors will recieve a commemorative Purple Purse Tassel. And all donations $50 or more will be entered in the raffle for Kerry Washingtons designed purple purse.
