Did you know that almost every victim of domestic violence experiences financial abuse?
It prevents victims from leaving their abusers and makes them more likely to return to them.
We’re part of an amazing campaign called The 2018 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a friendly fundraising competition where organizations working to financially empower victims of domestic and/or sexual abuse compete to raise the most money for their cause.
As a Purple Purse Challenge participant, Fort Bend Women’s Center could win $100,000!
$100,000 would provide four months of life changing support services for 200 survivors – counselling, education and employment assistance, case management and advocacy.
$100,000 could also provide 63 women and children with four weeks of accommodation, meals and support services in our Emergency Shelter.
You can help!
