Purple Cities Alliance Sevier County Mission Statement
On May 11th, 2017 Sevier County joined the Purple Cities Alliance and was declared one of the first Dementia Friendly Cities (“Purple City”) in the U.S., serving as a model for other communities across the country. In a Purple City, community members and organizations execute specific steps to learn about dementia and help those with dementia feel safer and better cared for in our community. The Purple Cities Alliance is a team of local volunteers, practitioners, and community leaders. The Purple Cities Alliance provides dementia education and training resources that enable community members and organizations to become more dementia friendly. The Purple Cities Alliance encourages all Sevier County citizens, businesses and organizations to join us in the journey toward making Sevier County a Purple Cities County. Together, we will join other Purple Cities in the U.S. and serve as a model for other communities across the country.
