Our Mission

We advance the health of our communities by investing in the physical, mental, and financial health of women and girls who have experienced gender-based violence.

PurpLE Family Health is opening!

PurpLE Family Health, a PHF-affiliated healthcare practice, is opening soon! PurpLE Family Health will be located within New York Doctors Urgent Care.  They have generously donated space, and we cannot thank them enough for their support! 

PurpLE Family Health will provide long-term, physical, mental, and financial health services along with ancillary care at no cost to GBV survivors and their children. You can help create a welcoming environment for survivors through our Amazon Wishlist, or through your monetary gifts

We're so excited that PurpLE has reached this momentous milestone!  These efforts will ensure that survivors and their children can access the healthcare they want, need, and deserve for years to come.

In this 20-minute segment, they discuss their former doctor-patient relationship, their belief that health, poverty, and trauma are interlinked, and why healthcare systems must be redesigned to address all three.
