Thanks to ’50 Shades of Purple’

Ottawa County Transitional Housing, Inc. wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude to the “50 Shades of Purple” project’s participants, sponsors, committee members, volunteers, local businesses and team leader, Corrine McRitchie, for all of your efforts and for your generous donation to its Ruth Ann’s House program.

This wonderful group formed to host an awareness event that provided fun while learning some facts about how Ottawa County and the country are facing increasing incidents of domestic violence in all its forms: Sexual, elder, child, financial, verbal, emotional, and, of course, physical violence.

“50 Shades of Purple” was held on Saturday Oct. 16 in downtown Port Clinton during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The committee and many businesses “colored the town purple.” While this event’s goal was to highlight awareness of this issue that impacts so many, it blossomed into a fundraising opportunity.

Together the “50 Shades of Purple’s” committee, volunteers, sponsors and supporters raised over $5,000, which was gifted to Ottawa County Transitional Housing’s program, Ruth Ann’s House.

Since its inception, Ruth Ann’s House’s primary mission has been to provide residency and supportive services to women and children moving away from an abusive situation. It is a transitional housing program located in Ottawa County, and can accommodate up to six women and their children at one time in a communal living situation.

Individuals and families can stay at Ruth Ann’s House for up to two years while working with staff on an individualized plan that addresses the client’s needs and/or barriers. Anyone in serious or immediate danger will be referred to a domestic violence shelter.

We look forward to working with these amazing people again and encourage everyone to “friend” 50 Shades of Purple on Facebook.
