The Generosity of a Community
Through the generosity of our local community, The Empowerment Center purchased the facility at 7400 S. Virginia Street in Reno in 2010 and began an 18-month renovation process. What once was an area where drugs and alcohol was the norm, is now a clean and sober living environment where lives are changing. The $1.3-million-dollar acquisition and renovation project was entirely paid off in December of 2014.
2013 Solar Energy Project
The Empowerment Center completed a solar energy project in early 2014 to reduce the cost of operations. This project has resulted in significant savings which can be directed toward Direct Client Services to further our goal of “Creating Solutions for Change” right here in our community.
The Renovation Photo Album
There’s been quite a bit of work done since February 2010, when the property was purchased, to the day we opened the doors. We put together a little photo album to share and to remind ourselves, how a wonderful transformation can be with help and support.
