We're reaching the finish line for the Purple Purse Challenge and have an amazing matching gift opportunity this week, which you can read about below. We're also holding a fundraiser at &Pizza tonight to raise money for the Purple Purse Challenge, so please stop by! And finally, as DVAM ends and we look toward the holidays, read below for how you can adopt one of our families for the holidays.

Thank you for your support, and let's work together to finish DVAM strong!

Clothesline Project Recap
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Clothesline Project 2017!

We held our annual Clothesline Project on October 13th and were so encouraged by how many engaged attendees came. We gained new supporters, new volunteers, and most importantly, greater awareness of domestic violence in our community. Elevating the voices of past and present women and children from our shelter reminded us why we do what we do. If you weren't able to attend, check out more photos and information on our website!
