THE STORY:

Working every day at the YWCA, I've learned how devastating domestic violence can be to a woman's life - but also how every day, with the right support and assistance, that woman can overcome the challenges life has thrown her and become safe, empowered and independent.  We see so many women who have experienced financial abuse - not able to pursue an education or career, denied the ability to manage their own money, forced to stay in an abusive relationship because that abuser may be her sole support, and she believes she has no way to survive without him.


At the YWCA, we work every day to help the women (and men) we serve become safe, strong, and free of abuse.  We do this through providing housing, counseling, case management, court advocacy, children's therapy, and much more.  Our STEP (Skills, Training and Empowerment Program) Workforce Development Initiative addresses financial abuse directly through assisting women in multiple ways - computer classes, resume workshops, interviewing skills, learning about entrepreneurship, and individual coaching/mentorship.  We see the results through the women we serve who are getting jobs, bulding confidence, and moving on to a new and independent life.  Every day we make a difference in someone's life! 


Please consider being our partner in this movement!  Your support of our Purple Purse funding initiative will help us meet our goal - and will help pave the way toward ending domestic violence!


Help us fill the Purple Purse so we can help more women become empowered and independent.  Here is what your support can do:  

$25 – Materials for a resume writing workshop 

 $50 - Group counseling session for one survivor  

$75 - Individual STEP coaching session for a survivor          

$100 - One night in the shelter for a woman and her children       

$250 – Court Advocate consultation 

$500 – Tuition for three survivors to attend a computer training  

$750 - One month of creative art therapy for a child in our PALS Program  

$1000 - Six months for a family in Supportive Housing
