For the last five years, The Allstate Foundation has conducted its award-winning Purple Purse campaign to help more people understand domestic violence, the prevalence of financial abuse and the promise of financial empowerment services to help end abuse. The YWCA of Northeast Kansas is one of 250 national, state and local nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. that will raise funding and change lives through this campaign.

To raise more awareness, the YWCA of Northeast Kansas is encouraging the public to participate in a Purple Purse Challenge by making personal donations. The Challenge will kick off on September 28, 2016 and will run through October 25, 2016.
