The Retreat, leading Long Island domestic violence service provider, has been selected by the Allstate Foundation to participate in the Purple Purse Challenge, a series of weekly contests intended to heighten public awareness and fundraising efforts. The Retreat was one of 146 nationwide service agencies selected for the challenge, which will run from September 2, 2014 through October 3, 2014.

The Retreat hopes their participation will benefit domestic violence survivors and their financial empowerment services, which have been offered by the organization since 2002. Their most recent program, Hope Heels, taught at-risk individuals, including 31 domestic violence survivors, to become financially stable and independent.

The Purple Purse Challenge will ultimately allow The Retreat to continue improving these programs.

The Retreat is located at 13 Goodfriend Drive in East Hampton. To donate to The Retreat's Purple Purse Challenge, visit www.crowdrise.com.
