About PPF

The PPF was founded in June 2016 as a non-profit foundation embracing the vision of its founder by providing support for under-resourced communities facing the challenges of poverty, limited access to healthy food and loss of housing. With support from grants, networking and fundraisers, the PPF guides these communities to build upon their assets and advance towards economic vitality, social justice, equity and overall environmental improvement.
