Mike Davis is the CEO of APPRISS and he is a board member of the Mary Byron Project. He is todays Center for Women and Families Purple Purse Champion today - he knows how important these funds are to our clients- because 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. Help us stop this cycle of abuse and donate today to our Purple Purse Challenge!
The Center for Women and Families helps victims of intimate partner violence and sexual assault to become survivors through support services, community education and cooperative partnerships that foster hope, promote self-sufficiency and rebuilds lives.

24-hour telephone and walk-in support
24-hour on-site advocacy at all area hospitals
Sexual assault forensic exams through the S.A.N.E. program
Legal advocacy for emergency orders of protection
Advocacy and Support
Counseling & therapy
Support & psycho-educational groups
Economic success/empowerment classes and counseling
