Purple Monday Inititative
Our Purple Monday Initiative is an advocacy campaign to bring awareness to Domestic Violence. Our goal is to change the belief that this is a private “Home Issue”, to the truth that Domestic Violence is a Community Issue that affects homes of all social status, ethnicity, age and/or sexual orientation.
STRONG HOMES
build a
STRONGER COMMUNITY!
Let’s make home the safest place for families by raising awareness and TALKING ABOUT this crime happening behind closed doors in our community.
NO MORE SILENCE! IT’S TIME!
 Let’s talk about it!
