Through mentoring, education and support, Parenting With Purpose will bring healing, restoration and liberty to families affected by incarceration.

Parenting With Purpose is supported by the generosity of its donors and dedicated volunteers. As such, we host the following special events throughout the year to raise awareness, recruit volunteers and raise financial support.

Family Fun Day

A day set aside for our families to enjoy a special day of fun, food and fellowship. Not only is this a day where we bless our families, but it is also an opportunity to facilitate mentor matches. Donors and supporters are invited to join us to see firsthand the joys and blessings of the PWP organization.

MN Mentoring Ride

Our signature summer event where motorcyclists ride together to break the cycle of crime. By raising awareness and support, we hope to minimize the likelihood of children following their parents’ footsteps by entering a life of crime. Rides, families and the public are invited to take part in this exciting event.

PWP Experience

Our annual event designed to increase awareness and recruit mentors and volunteers. This is the highlight of our year, the evening allows people to gather to hear our hearts, and messages directly from the children and families we serve. Our multi-media approach to the evening energizes and stimulates guests, providing them with a memorable experience that touches their hearts.


We have a continual need for passionate volunteers to help with all aspects of our events and fundraising. If you are interested in any the following areas please contact us.

  • Event planning
  • Social media

  • Video taping and editing
  • Hospitality (inviting PWP to share with your friends, family or co-workers in a small group setting)
  • Connecting PWP to your church or business
  • Grant research and writing
  • Talking on the phone
  • Acting, singing, dancing or playing an instrument

Whether its using your talents to plan or prepare fundraising events, create a social media campaign, craft testimonials, or network with potential donors, your gifts and talents make a difference in the lives of children and their families. Even if you only have a few hours a month, there is always an event or fundraising project under way.
