[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”white”]We partner with domestic violence shelters throughout the region to provide programming focused on self-sufficiency skills and access to resources that their clients need to successfully and sustainably rebuild their lives.

Through this new approach, we have seen a drastic reduction in the recidivism rate as women are now empowered to move forward on their journey and establish safe and productive lives for themselves and their children.

Stories of Changed Lives

We named our program Purple Hearts after the medal given for bravery to the wounded in battle. These women have survived a terrorizing war and shown enormous courage to rescue themselves and their children from life-threatening abuse. We salute you!

Domestic Violence 101

Domestic violence is defined by the U.S. Department of Justice as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner, whether in a physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological way. This can include any behavior that is used to intimidate, threaten, hurt, isolate, frighten or coerce someone.[/vc_column_text][mk_button dimension=”flat” corner_style=”full_rounded” size=”x-large” url=”/learn/”]Learn More[/mk_button][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/mk_page_section]
