I had the pleasure of working with the Purposely Chosen Organization at the 2012 I Am Purpose Talent Expo. I served in the capacity of guest performer and judge. The event was well organized and inspirational. I am an advocate against domestic violence and the founder of B.O.S.S. ( Building Other Strong Sistas). I also work with various nonprofit organizations and I can tell you that what Dretona Maddox is doing through this organization is both timely and life changing. When speaking one on one with Mrs. Maddox I learned that she has compassion for the youth and a desire to strengthen families. She hosts monthly baby showers and uses them as an avenue to unite families in support of the child to come. This organization steers from the norm of judging pregnant teens as it has been chosen to redirect them and guide them towards being responsible for themselves and their future child. Purposely Chosen Inc. is both unique and necessary.
As the Director of a collaborating organization, I am honored to have an association with an organization who shares our passion for helping others. Purposely Chosen, Inc. is committed to the idea that everyone has a purpose and that notion is manifested in the quality programs and services they offer to the community. In addition to helping the homeless, innovative is the path they take to advocate for the babies. By hosting baby showers for displaced pregnant and parenting teens, they help to ensure that the young life’s PURPOSE is actualized through the support, encouragement and guidance they provide to teen parents who would otherwise have few life supports.
