Mission Statement

Our mission is to help youth who are unhoused or at risk of becoming unhoused overcome real-life challenges by providing essential services and a safe community; while empowering them to become self- sufficient adults.

Description

Our vision is setup to empower people from ages 16 on up (with an emphasis on ages 16-24); through education, healing, and helping them to see themselves as free from things that hold a social and environmental stigma over them. We do this by offering behavioral modification that will assist them mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, financially, and spiritually. In a practical sense it will look like offering job readiness and life skills, parenting classes, drop-in centers, offering community resources, housing, and self-care. Empowering You 2 Move will also be able to offer a place of networking with all different walks of life and prepare our generations for more wealth and not just riches. We want to uplift, restore, educate and strengthen the lives of those in our community one life at a time. We do this by way of job readiness training, parenting and life skills classes, therapy and counseling, financial education and more. We have the assumptions that they are going to grow by leaps and bounds when getting their basic needs met. Knowing that they will experience progress and relapses on their journey to self sufficiency and what to do when those relapses come their way.
