Introducing New Promise Place Logo

FAYETTE - Promise Place is excited to roll out our new agency logo. The community has always recognized Promise Place by the purple ribbon - purple representing the color used to symbolize domestic violence. After serving the community for over 32 years our board of directors decided it was time to refresh the logo.

"The old ribbon motif is grossly overused for hundreds of causes therefore lessening our impact. The colors of our new logo capture our historical purple and green which represents growth," Venis Sims, Board Secretary.

"We wanted a logo that encapsulated the very idea of a safe nurturing space where victims of domestic violence can seek shelter and begin the healing process after experiencing domestic violence first hand. We wanted a modern logo that appealed to the digital world and could be used by itself in publications, apps, signage, etc. We feel the green shelter outline along with the purple door invokes the image of an open place where victims can seek shelter and create something new from a tragic situation," Nick Rider, Board Chair.

At Promise Place, we will continue to provide preventative education, legal advocacy programs, shelter services, and follow up consultative services to ensure our community ends domestic violence.

We look forward to many other exciting changes in the near future as our organization grows to meet the needs of domestic violence survivors in our communities.
