Say hello to Team Purple Salvos who smashed their fundraising goal of $1000 by raising over $1600 to raise awareness about domestic violence in Australia.
Deciding to go Purple for a Cause, the team coloured their hair purple in support of our programs helping people affected by family violence.
In Australia, 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime.
At the Salvos, we believe that everyone deserves to feel safe and free from harm. We offer crisis accommodation, counselling and support, strategies for keeping the family together, and ongoing support and security.
After year’s of physical and emotional abuse, Clare found the courage to leave her ice-addicted parter. Safe accommodation, counselling and spiritual support from the Salvos have changed Clare’s outlook for good. “My life is peaceful, in the right direction, much happier,” she says. “My relationship with my kids has always been good but it’s wonderful now… They love the peace”.
