My ChangePurses has been blessed to partner with Artemis Center in Dayton, Ohio since 2017. Through incredible generosity, we have been able to consistently donate packed purses to the women receiving care and services through this wonderful organization.
In June 1985, a small group of women, often working without pay, started Artemis House (now Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Violence) to provide advocacy services beyond the traditional housing and safety offered by battered women’s shelters. For over three decades, Artemis has served more than 95,000 victims of domestic violence and their children, providing crisis intervention, safety planning, education, and emotional and material support. Artemis Center empowers victims of domestic violence to make decisions and choices that will allow them to achieve and maintain safety for themselves and their children. By working collaboratively with other community resources, Artemis Center advocates are able to coordinate needed services for victims. Additionally, through collaboration with the justice, child welfare and healthcare systems, as well as other systems partners, and through community education and advocacy programs, Artemis has been instrumental in the development and implementation of community-wide best practice responses to domestic violence.
