Our Mission

Purses Full of Hope gives the opportunity for women to build each other up. Donating a purse ignites empowerment not only in the women who receive the purses but also in the women who fill them.

Thousand Women Impacted

At PFOH, we believe that the empowerment is experienced by both the giver and the receiver.

 

Our Purses

When women arrive at a shelter they often receive a plain plastic bag with their belongings. That being said, the purses alone lift spirits. When they are filled with shampoo, nail polish, tampons and a handwritten note, it is life-changing.
