We’ve helped hundreds of people to find employment, diverted them from homelessness, and empowered them to become self-sufficient.
“The Empowerment Center is where I got all of the love and support I needed to change my life. When I came here, I was unemployed, homeless, and ready to quit using drugs for good. I never felt judged or ashamed. I only felt accepted and more connected because of my past. Now I have the job of my dreams, give back to my community, and am part of the Empowerment Center family.”
~ Al, volunteer for over 7 years
Feeding and empowering people for over 20 years
The Empowerment Center is an independent non-profit that diverts tons of food each year from the sanitary landfill to thousands of families and homeless who would otherwise go hungry. We’ve also been instrumental in putting people to work, diverting them from homelessness, and restoring individuals to self-sufficiency.
