Welcome to My Power of the Purse Page
I have committed to participating and raising funds for YWCA Greater Lafayette's Power of the Purse – a fundraising campaign for survivors of domestic violence 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.
Like YWCA Greater Lafayette, I 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 I’m committed to raising $1,000 for YWCA Greater Lafayette's Power of the Purse. I’ve set an ambitious goal to support YWCA and hope that you’ll join with me! The money raised will help these essential, empowering programs to continue thriving.
I personally have been here....scared....unsure what the future held. The YWCA was a huge support and helped me find the right resources. I am so grateful for the wonderful women that assisted me during the process. I would love to help and support others. Please thinking about supporting this cause. It could be your daughter, sister, friend, or family member. They may be suffering in silence, unsure where to turn. Give them a voice!
