From the Founders:
The Purple Project was formed after we suffered every parent’s worst nightmare. On August 19, 2012 our daughter Alisha and unborn granddaughter Ava Lucille were tragically murdered. Our love for Alisha and Ava Lucille is our inspiration and passion behind the Purple Project. Our objective is to keep our daughter and granddaughter’s memory alive and combat the evil acts that occurred that day with a lifetime of Love, Hope and Kindness.

Thank you for visiting our site and supporting Purple Project.

Purple Project is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on making a difference in our communities several different ways;


Community Outreach:
As part of our community outreach we encourage everyone to make a difference by participating in “Pay It Forward”. Make a difference and conduct a random act of kindness.

We aid in the Grief healing process by Hosting an annual Night of Hope and providing counseling services.

We speak out at high schools and other events against Domestic Violence with a message of awareness, warning signs, breaking the cycle and how anything can be accomplished with Love, Hope and God’s will.

Alisha and Ava Memorial Community Scholarship:
We partnered with the Joliet Juniors Women’s Club to help fund the Alisha and Ava Memorial Community Scholarship which grants two annual scholarships to young exceptional women making a difference in the community.

Alisha and Ava House of Hope:
We hold annual baby drives to raise funds and items for young single mothers. We sponsor these young mothers for an entire year.

Our Vision:
To grow our ability to sponsor these young mothers by building the Alisha and Ava’s House of Hope. We would like to create a safe haven for young mothers that do not have the support of a family. A safe place they can live and raise their child, for the first year, as they learn the skills and get the support they need to be a successful parent.
