Purple Purse Challenge

Tuesday, October 2 thru ,

Did you know that financial abuse occurs in 99% of domestic violence cases? It is one of the most powerful methods of keeping a victim trapped in an abusive relationship.  Survivors stay or return to their abusers because they feel they are unable to care for themselves and their children with no financial support. 

Please join the People's Place Purple Purse Challenge team as we raise funding to continue providing Financial Empowerment classes for domestic violence survivors.  Making Cent$ is a 5 class program that covers financial safety, how to have a healthy financial relationship, develop a spending plan, learn about credit, and find out the best ways to buy a car, rent an apartment, buy a home, and pay for education.  This successful curriculum has helped hundreds of survivors and changed lives. 

You can help by joining or creating a team of your own at https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/team/dcadv-purplepurse2018.
