“Last year, approximately 1 out of 2 survivors were turned away from shelter due to lack of space. A Purple Postcard is a powerful way for Texans to send a strong united message to our legislators declaring that we stand with survivors and ask for full funding for services for victims of family violence. Purple Postcards from all over the state will send an amplified call to the Texas Legislature to support critical funding for family violence services.”
It is the Vision of The Purple Door to end domestic violence and sexual assault in the Coastal Bend region while upholding our Mission to empower the community and those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault to transition to a safe and healthy environment.
