Domestic Violence Awareness Month - 2017 Purple Purse Challenge

All Tech Automotive in support of WellSpring 2017 Purple Purse Challenge

October is not only Car Care Month, but also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. All Tech Automotive wants to give a spotlight to WellSpring, a local nonprofit that works in Saratoga County to end relationship and sexual abuse in the community.

What does WellSpring do?

In Saratoga County, domestic violence is the number one cause of family homelessness, and the number two crime and number two cause of homicide. WellSpring strives to meet the growing demand for services in Saratoga County to support domestic violence survivors. At the same time, they aspire to reduce the prevalence of sexual and relationship violence by putting greater focus on prevention, early intervention, and service accessibility. 

At WellSpring, the mission is to support survivors and engage the community to end relationship and sexual abuse. Each year, the crisis intervention and survivor services support more than 1,000 clients - providing safe housing to adults and children either fleeing or homeless because of domestic violence, as well as comprehensive support in the form of counseling, legal advocacy, and case management.
