Start Out Fresh Intervention Advocates (S.O.F.I.A.) in Essex County just held its 5th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence in Montclair’s Canterbury Park. This advocacy group holds workshops, programs, and support groups for women and families recovering from domestic violence. With services free and open to the community, S.O.F.I.A. depends on community grants and donations to continue to provide its services. Coming up in October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, S.O.F.I.A. has been accepted for the second year to the Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Campaign. As one of only five non-profit organizations in New Jersey to be a part of this campaign, it’s a great honor and opportunity.
