Purple Purse Challenge

We’re so excited that the Purple Purse Challenge has started and our donate button is now live.  In this fundraising campaign launched by Allstate Foundation, organizations combating domestic violence compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations.

The YWCA can’t continue to provide comprehensive, wrap-around crisis services to victims of violence without your support. Your gifts have helped us provide a 24-hour Coordinated Crisis Response (CCR) Hotline, a collaborative project with Samaritan House, HER Shelter, and Genieve Shelter, and the wrap-around services that accompany our collective response. With your support, we’ve been able to answer more than 21,680 calls since its inception in October 2016.

Every dollar counts and we work hard to ensure our families have the support they need each day. Please consider making a gift to support the YWCA services in our community. Your gift will help the YWCA to continue to serve women and children in crisis during a very busy fiscal year.
