Noun: the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life.
We once asked a group of students on a tour of Mission Central what they thought the word empowerment meant. An answer that came from the back seemed the perfect answer: “to help someone get their power back.”
Empowerment is the heart of our mission. We are here to help you get your power back. By sharing groceries, we give you the power to feed your family, so you can use limited funds to tend to other urgent priorities. By providing you with connections to community resources, we give you the power to find help you need to address a crisis. By offering tutoring and career guidance, we give your family the power to pursue your dreams.
If you need help getting your power back and moving toward self-sufficiency, please come visit us. We’re here to help.
