Project Purple's Mission Statement
It is Project Purple’s mission to unite people in long-term recovery, their families, city officials, each of who may attend the independently operated recovery related events but will now find them to come together periodically to exhibit a oneness with the now separately functioning recovery community groups, and to create a unified front with tools we will provide to ensure a victory when faced with the battles that accompany substance abuse and even from clean time experiences. From the devastating effects of alcohol and drug disorders, their families will again find themselves acting as one with those they love, lifting a voice for recovery and promoting advocacy for those in need, regardless of what group you choose to be a member of in Lafayette.
Project Purple Vision
Our vision is to bring people in long-term recovery from the vice-like grips of alcohol and other drug disorders, as well as to unite their families together around them through the outlet of using community art projects. While we both recognize and celebrate the fact that there are multiple pathways to long-term recovery; it is in our vision that our purpose to create a unified recovery community can result in a powerful force against these diseases. Through these endeavors, we hope that by providing advocacy for our clients that their newly acquired choices and voices when empowered by our efforts which will prove to be effective and result in meeting the following areas of great need within the Greater Lafayette communities:
Gaining needed resources through our volunteer guidance and advising.
Embracing all pathways to recovery, realizing that each recovery community in our area should function as a whole as opposed to segregated operations.
Reminding local providers that the development of systems and strategies, and becoming educated and aware of those developments alongside clients should always include the voices of those whom they serve.
End discrimination and the placement of stigmas, from drug and alcohol use, on those who are reaching out for help through treatment facilities, churches, meetings and make them feel support, hopeful, resourceful, and with purpose.

North Central Indiana Peer Support Network
This is a great example of the kind of service my clients have come to expect from Recovery Matters. Nothing matters more than my clients, and when they hire me for the second, or third (or tenth) time, I know I’m doing something right. When people know they can rely on my professional service, that’s when great things start happening.
