Our Mission

To you, that purse no longer serves its purpose, so it sits in the back of your closet. To another woman, it can provide a renewed purpose.  The start of a better future.  Knowing she is valued and loved.  Hope.

My ChangePurses acquires gently-used purses, fills them with feminine hygiene products, and donates them to organizations who support the vulnerable female population in Central and Southwest Ohio.

Our mission is to empower women to turn their vulnerabilities into possibilities and remind them they are not alone or forgotten.

My ChangePurses is honored to partner with Toward Independence in Xenia, Ohio to accomplish our goals. Their volunteers and clients supply the manpower necessary to build the purses before being delivered to local shelters.

Toward Independence, Inc. is a nonprofit agency that provides a full range of services and support programs for individuals with developmental disabilities. Their mission is to empower people with developmental disabilities to experience the fullest life possible by providing person-centered supports which enable them to integrate into a variety of settings within their community. Founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated parents and professionals, their agency has assisted over 190 individuals in fulfilling their personal needs, choices, hopes and dreams during our years of operation. It is their enduring goal to honor the work and dignity of each individual they serve. They currently serve over 160 individuals in Greene, Hamilton, and Montgomery counties in Ohio.

My ChangePurses has been blessed to partner with Artemis Center in Dayton, Ohio since 2017. Through incredible generosity, we have been able to consistently donate packed purses to the women receiving care and services through this wonderful organization.

In June 1985, a small group of women, often working without pay, started Artemis House (now Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Violence) to provide advocacy services beyond the traditional housing and safety offered by battered women’s shelters. For over three decades, Artemis has served more than 95,000 victims of domestic violence and their children, providing crisis intervention, safety planning, education, and emotional and material support. Artemis Center empowers victims of domestic violence to make decisions and choices that will allow them to achieve and maintain safety for themselves and their children. By working collaboratively with other community resources, Artemis Center advocates are able to coordinate needed services for victims. Additionally, through collaboration with the justice, child welfare and healthcare systems, as well as other systems partners, and through community education and advocacy programs, Artemis has been instrumental in the development and implementation of community-wide best practice responses to domestic violence.

Mission: Leading the Community in Its Commitment to End Domestic Violence

Since 2018, My ChangePurses has proudly partnered with Women Helping Women in Cincinnati, Ohio. Through incredible generosity, we have been able to consistently donate packed purses to the women receiving care and services through this wonderful organization.

WHW is the leading agency in a four-county region serving nearly 6,000 survivors a year, whenever and wherever they need us most. WHW also strongly believes that we must collectively work together to prevent violence from ever happening in the first place. Through its prevention programming, WHW empowers over 4,400 students per year in over 25 schools with healthy relationship education and prevention of dating and sexual violence strategies.

Mission: to prevent gender-based violence and to empower all survivors.
