October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

House of Ruth is honored to be selected by the Allstate Foundation to join the national Purple Purse Fundraising Challenge to spotlight financial abuse as a growing form of domestic violence. We are one of over 160 domestic violence organizations across the country to participate and, with your help we are ready to achieve our goal of raising $100,000 towards this cause!

Financial abuse as a form of domestic violence doesn’t leave visible scars. For victims, the thought of not being able to provide food or housing for themselves or their children becomes the main reason for either staying or returning to the abuser.

Victims of domestic violence lack the financial resources to break free and stay free.Chino Hills Events in October

House of Ruth works to rebuild survivors’ self-worth with trauma informed services. Every survivor is given the time to heal and process understanding the cycle of violence within relationships, including conversations about financial abuse to help them build a path towards financial self-sufficiency

Financial Abuse can include:

  • Preventing someone from accessing a bank account.
  • Stopping someone from working.
  • Ruining someone’s credit.
  • Draining assets once someone has left an abusive relationship.

When people return to abusive partners, it’s often due to financial pressure.

Be a partner to House of Ruth and help us end financial abuse ! Donate Now,  visit PURPLEPURSE2017.
