About Us


Who I am

Hello. My name is Loretta Fralin-Rapp and I am a person with a heart for people with mental illness making the transition out of jail or prison. My organization, Purity Arts Center, will help women and men to get a second chance in life. We help those who have struggled wih mental illness who maybe have made some mistakes and deserve a second chance.


What we're about

We will do this by providing housing, treatment, creative outlets, and on-the-job training within Lilyeve's Cafe. Our food and beverage establishment will be known for our fabulous brunch and recipes that are on the fringe of fine dining. You'll know, with every delicious spoonful, that you are giving someone a second chance. We serve meals with purpose.



During our program, our participants build real work experience, develop community skills, experience healing and define a new sense of purpose. If you would like to be a part of this new organization as a provider, a supporter, or an investor please attend our fundraising brunch on November 10th at 10 am on the lowel level of the 807 Building (Jeremiah Joe's) in Ottawa. While there is no cost to attend, this event is a project fundraiser and donations are welcome and appreciated. Please get in touch with me at 312-796-5912 or email if you have any questions and especially to reserve your spot at the event! Thank you!
