Our story so far..
On Dec 31, 2012, a young mother, Laura Aceves, lost her life trying to escape her abuser. She was murdered, her 4 month old child was left by her side. At that time, we learned there were no services for women in the county.
The Purple Flower grew out of a response to Laura's death, so that no more women would be without help in Carroll County, AR. We opened our doors December 2, 2014 in a small store front on North Springfield Street in Berryville, AR. In February 2016 we moved to an office diagonal to the County Courthouse in Berryville.
We continue to offer women a safe space to tell their story and receive domestic violence and sexual assault support and services.
You are not alone!
