Status of Purple Moon Project

We are making significant progress toward service delivery!


Here is where Purple Moon Project stands at the moment:

  • We have received our 501(c)(3) status!
  • We are the Mentor Coordinator for Frederick County’s new Veteran’s Treatment Court. If you’d like to learn more about this innovative program’s potential to help our local veterans who find themselves involved with the criminal justice system, please see the Contact page to drop us a note or give us a call.
  • We are planning a mentor training soon. We are still working out the details, but we expect 18-24 newly-minted mentors will be ready to help people successfully navigate the safety net and life’s challenges on their way to self-sufficiency.
  • We will launch a small pilot in the coming months to test our newly-honed protocols and procedures.

We are always looking for help

Although we are grateful for support in whatever form it comes, there are a few specific things that would really benefit our progress:


There are a few requirements we must meet before we can provide service, not the least of which is liability insurance. If you would like to help, a small tax-deductible donation of $25 or $50 will go a long way.


Peer support has proven itself all over the world as a formidable tool in helping people improve their circumstances. Purple Moon Project depends on the general community — peers — for our mentors. The core requirements are non-judgmental empathy and the ability to instill hope.


Purple Moon Project is transitioning into a structured, sustainable, robust organization and we are actively recruiting board members who want to help us get there.


We are happy to talk with anyone about the insidious nature of poverty, all its various impacts on its victims and the larger community, different approaches to dealing with poverty, what’s being done locally, even the overall efficacy of person-centered service delivery models.



By 2024, poverty in Frederick County is becoming rare, unnecessary, and brief.
