Jennifer Estey Purple Heart Award recipients 2022

In recognition of their commitment to helping children, homeless families, women, and survivors of trauma access resources and reach their full potential, the 2022 Purple Heart Award winner is Women2Women.

Through corporate partnerships, Women2Women leverages cross-sectional engagement to enhance broader initiatives. Some of their services include life skill preparations, food and nutrition, basic essential needs, enrichment, and educational opportunities. Advocating for change, promoting empowerment, and providing resources to those in need are only some of the ways that Women2Women positively impacts the lives of Alvis clients and others in the community.

It is because of this tireless devotion to service that we are honored to recognize Women2Women with the 2022 Purple Heart Award.
