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.
Purple Hearts is an all-volunteer initiative and a community service program of Purpose Church. Our team is committed to providing love and assistance to victims of domestic violence housed in shelters in southern California.
Your generosity will make a difference in the lives of women and children victimized by domestic violence and help give them a safe and fresh new start. 100% of our donations go directly to support these families.
If you are in danger, call 911, the local Southern California hotline 877-988-5559, or the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224.
