Since 2010, P.U.R.E Friendship Ministries have led the effort in Pensacola Florida to permanently bring to the forefront the need for the local church to intentionally reach out to P.U.R.E. families.  We have sponsored many major events related to the church community advocating for P.U.R.E. people and families.

Our Mission

PURE Friendship Ministries exists to help people with disabilities discover (and use) their God given gifts, talents and abilities to be apart of the community and to fill their role in the life that God intends for them.  Our students are learning characteristics about themselves that they never new existed.  Many times there skills allow them to become involved with job training and reediness  via our PURE Empowerment Center.

Please don’t limit yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you the “limits” to you abilities. The limits are simply where you choose to stop, and you will never know what those limits are if you don’t start.
