Our mission is to inspire and support incarcerated adults and youth before and after release to achieve their dreams and goals and lead purposeful and productive lives through life coaching.  

When people find their purpose, follow their dreams, and obtain their goals, the number of possible positive effects are endless.  People with Purpose offers people a second chance to make a better choice for themselves, their family and friends, and our community.  Each person will influence the world in their own unique and creative way. One might start college and inspire their son or daughter to avoid a life of crime and stay in school.  Another might open a business generating jobs and adding to the growth of our economy.  Perhaps one will realize his or her natural artistic abilities and paint a beautiful picture for many others to enjoy.  There are infinite possibilities.  Critically, People with Purpose will decrease the recidivism rate and reduce incarceration costs as well as create other economic benefits such as increased tax revenues from additional working citizens and decreased court, probation, parole, foster care, and law enforcement costs resulting in better and safer communities.

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.
— Mark Twain
