The Generosity of a Community
Through the generosity of our local community, The Empowerment Center purchased and renovated an old transient motel at 7400 S. Virginia Street. What once was an area where drugs and alcohol was the norm, is now a clean and sober living environment where lives are changing.
2013 Solar Energy Project
After completion of the renovation project, and inline with our long term strategic plan to reduce the cost of operations, The Empowerment Center began on a solar energy project in late 2013. The project was completed in early 2014 and 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 from Feb 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.
