"Purpose University provided me with tools to begin making a vision a reality. Dr. Derrick Drakeford's compassionate and personal attention helped me see that I am capable of creating a nonprofit that serves the community more expansively than I had initially envisioned. His guidance and support brought the useful ebooks to life by applying direct steps to getting started. I am grateful that I took the opportunity to work with Purpose University."
