The Wellspring 2017 Purple Purse Challenge

JC Sweet & Co. loves supporting nonprofits like Wellspring

Here at JC Sweet & Co. we love supporting local businesses and nonprofits. During the month of October, Wellspring, a local nonprofit organization that supports domestic violence victims is taking part in the nationwide Purple Purse Challenge.

How Wellspring cares for relationship and domestic violence survivors

Wellspring has assisted tens of thousands of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault – whether they needed an escape, were looking for advice, or sought to improve their quality of life. Wellspring is part of your community – existing to serve you and your loved ones, and while they continue to offer their essential safety, intervention, and support services, they strive to do more.

Wellspring believes that the expanded focus on their work should be educating the community about these issues and advocating for social change – can help to prevent abuse and crises before it happens. Wellspring’s vision is “A Saratoga County free of relationship and sexual abuse”.
