Take the Purple Purse Challenge!
Alpha House of Tampa has been selected to participate in the national 2016 Purple Purse Challenge! http://purplepurse.com/
The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge is aimed at creating long-term safety for domestic violence survivors through financial empowerment. Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, yet financial abuse happens in 99% of all domestic violence cases. The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free.
Did you know that 45% of Alpha House of Tampa residents have survived domestic violence? Beginning September 28th, you will have an opportunity to assist moms in creating a more secure future for themselves and their children.
When Alpha House of Tampa raises at least $100 online on September 28th between 12pm and midnight, we will receive a $100 match from the AllState Foundation. Here’s the link: https://www.crowdrise.com/alphahouseoftampa-purplepurse2016. There will be additional challenges each week throughout October.
