what we do
empowering CLIENTS TO OVERCOME
R Empowerment helps clients find financial success by teaching budgeting skills and aiding in the search for a rewarding career. We offer programs to help our residents get back on their feet and stay on track.
Whether our participants are unemployed or under-employed, R Empowerment is here to aid in the journey towards a rewarding career. We engage our clients with resumé building and interview skills, aiding them in finding a financially rewarding career that drives their passion.
To help end the cycle of poverty, we believe in providing the youth with the same strategies we teach our clients. Through extra-cirricular programs, budget classes and higher education guidance, we empower our clients’ children to live their best lives.
Living to work? Working to live? These two sentences mean very different things. At R Empowerment we understand that the overall physical, mental, and emotional toll that our jobs take on us can effect our quality of life as well as the quality of life for those around us. We believe that gently focusing on a more holistic approach to living can improve one’s time here with their loved ones. Small steps now create the greatest impact building the future we desire.
