About Working For A Purpose

Working For A Purpose Foundation is a 501 C3 non-profit organization assisting and supporting single-parent families in our community. The organization was founded in March of 2020 by Monica Hester. As her life ventured into the world of single parenthood, it opened her eyes to see a great need in the community. A need to address the many mothers and fathers who struggle daily with raising children on their own. Through this vision, Monica noticed one thing we all hear daily, "it takes a village" when raising children. A village to provide clothing, food, safety, shelter & a good foundation to which some may not have consistent access.

With this passion growing in her heart, she knew it was laid on her to take action. To make a change in the evident growth of hardships & the fulfilling the needs in our community, Working For A Purpose Foundation was established to do just that. As of 2021, there are about 14 million single parents here in the U.S. today & that the number is rising. Which means we have a lot of work to do and families to touch. 

Our Mission
Our mission is to operate as a non-profit in the local community giving aid, assistance, hope, and love to our neighbors.
