Safe Havens Wins Purple Ribbon Award for Outstanding Community Education
Safe Havens Interfaith Partnership Against Domestic Violence and Elder Abuse is honored to be an award recipient of the Purple Ribbon Award, the first comprehensive awards program distinguishing the countless heroes of the domestic violence movement. The award ceremony was held virtually on September 15, 2021. The Purple Ribbon Awards were a combined effort between Theresa’s Fund, DomesticShelters.org, and experts in the field of domestic violence.
The Purple Ribbon award was scored off of four factors: 1) Challenge & Impact, 2) Creativity & Originality, 3) Submission Excellence, and 4) Overall Performance. Each entry was scored by three judges and each judge scored each entry on a 1-25 scale across all factors. The scores for an entry were averaged and up to the three highest scores in a given category received a Purple Ribbon Award.
Safe Havens’ Director, Rev. Dr. Anne Marie Hunter attended the virtual award ceremony. Hunter “is honored to receive the Purple Ribbon Award from Domestic Shelters.org and delighted that Safe Havens’ hard work and effective training were celebrated.” Safe Havens’ community education programs train both advocates and faith leaders about working together to support the complex needs of faith-affiliated survivors of domestic violence and elder abuse. Hunter “is thrilled that Safe Havens’ programs have been recognized for Outstanding Community Education.” Learn more about Safe Havens’ community education here.
