Welcome to DVIPP's Power of the Purse Page
Welcome to the Domestic Violence Intervention and Prevention Team fundraising page. Team DVIPP are made up of the advocates that work directly with survivors every day in our Emergency Shelter, support groups, therapy, and legal and Hispanic Advocacy services.
We have committed to participating and raising funds for YWCA Greater Lafayette's Power of the Purse – a fundraising campaign for the survivors of domestic violence we work with every day in Tippecanoe and surrounding counties.
One of the roadblocks many survivors face is financial dependence on their abuser. Without financial independence, many survivors feel they have no other option but to go back. YWCA is on a mission to empower survivors through job training, housing assistance, financial literacy programs and more because they know the Power of the Purse is freedom from abuse.
We believe that with support, empowerment and financial assistance, we can remove barriers so that victims of domestic violence can not only survive, but thrive in indpendent lives, free from abuse and control. That’s why we are committed to raising $1,000 for YWCA Greater Lafayette's Power of the Purse. We've set an ambitious goal to support YWCA and hope that you’ll join with us! The money raised will help our essential, empowering programs to continue thriving.
