Hope House is thrilled to announce that we are one of 146 national, state, and local organizations across the country that have been selected to participate in The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge. The purpose of the Challenge is to ignite public awareness of domestic violence and financial abuse and to assist with fundraising.

The Challenge officially runs from September 2 to October 3. In addition to receiving a $1,000 grant, we get the chance to win more funds through daily and weekly fundraising contests.

We need your help to win this challenge!
