Worcester Goes Purple


Worcester Goes Purple wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.


Who We Are

 Worcester Goes Purple is an awareness project to engage the community in preventing substance abuse and promoting healthy life choices. The project is inspired by the THP Project Purple, an initiative of The Herren Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation established by former NBA basketball player, Chris Herren, that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction.

WGP is an initiative supported by Worcester County Public Schools, Worcester County Health Department, Atlantic General Hospital and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. WGP welcomes partnerships with community organizations and businesses who support their mission. Funding is being made possible through the participating agencies, the Heroin and Opioid Policy Development Grant, and donations from the generous Worcester County community.
