“I started Children With a Purpose to provide a service to any and all parents, guardians, and child authority figure – regardless of race, religion, economic or criminal status.  Many times services offered by the state are limited and those able to benefit from those services even more limited.  I choose to help those who recognize they need the help.  The impact we are making is absolutely positive and positively absolute!”  ~ Catherine Washington
