Purposely Chosen Inc is a very unique non-profit. It's not everyday that you find an organization willing to help displaced pregnant teens. I personally have served at the baby showers for its clients & have attended the very exciting iAm Purpose Talent Expo both years. I find that Purposely Chosen has been a great help to those whom it has already served, and can do much more for those in need of its services. I believe Purposely Chosen has made great provisions for displaced teen mothers, and has an overall life-changing impact on them.

Purposely Chosen serves as a safe haven for displaced pregnant teens. If it were not for programs such as this, young expectant mothers would be forced to survive on the streets by any means necessary. Purposely Chosen enables them an opportunity to start motherhood with the necessary information to care for themselves as well as the baby, while preparing them to enter society as productive citizens. I appauld Purposely Chosen for their efforts in this undertaking.

Purposely Chosen Inc has been helping people in the coachella valley. They help people that are homeless with care packages, clothes, and referrals. I worked with this organization in giving baby showers for pregnant teens in foster care. They have provided strollers, car seats, carriers diapers etc. This organization is a non profit that is really about helping the people. It also sponsored a iam purpose talent Expo every year with a celebrity. This past year was Fantasia Barrino who was an American Idol winner. She came and spoke to the youth about staying in school. She also shared about being a teen mom. Last year they featured Rand B singer Chante' Moore. Those that participated won cash prizes along with pictures with the celebrities. I believe in this organization and it will always give back. It also supports other organizations in their efforts such a s Family Health Foster care network. Now to me that speaks volumes when you can help other organizations achieve their goals. I give this Purposely Chosen Inc 5 stars.
