Organization description:
Empower Me is a program that is in direct response to the growing number of single parents and women who are either falling through the cracks of society or are already entangled with the court system. Our mission is to pursue the principles of commitment, support, responsibility. Our goal is to identify single parents and women who are going to have a turbulent transition to adulthood and offer a positive support system to avoid the downfalls that can derail their lives. The focus is slightly different at each level, but the goal remains the same, empower the single parents and women to make positive changes in their lives.
