Mission Statement

We at Empower4Life believe in the power of education to transform the minds and lives of children. Our goal is to decrease the negative health impacts of homelessness on children by providing structured fitness activities and wellness education. Our aim is to nurture the heart, mind and body of each young shelter resident through the utilization of age appropriate lessons and provision of essential resources. We believe that this integrated approach will serve best in helping to guide these children to a happy, healthy life.

Description

Empower4Life was founded in May of 2015 and built upon the following three pillars: health for hope, fitness for a future, and resources for rejuvenation. Through these components, we encourage children in shelters to make good choices in life by giving them the tools needed to build and maintain their mental, emotional, social and spiritual health throughout their lives, by offering them access to age appropriate wellness lessons. We provide opportunities for children in shelters to learn that physical fitness can be a fun, lifelong habit by offering participation in a variety of games, exercises and movement activities led by fitness professionals. Finally, we seek assistance from the community in order to provide children in shelters with material resources necessary for life success.
