October is National Domestic Violence awareness month and Family Shelter Service is proud to be participating in Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse national campaign. The number 1 reason domestic violence survivors stay, or return to an abusive relationship, is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free. Allstate Purple Purse focuses on ending domestic violence through financial empowerment services for survivors. Domestic violence and financial abuse don’t discriminate. It affects people of all races, genders, religions and income levels — even right in your own community. Help us by clicking here to help us raise funds through Purple Purse or by registering or volunteering for our Run/Walk on October 29.
