Our mission is to create a safe and positive environment where marginalized people can find the tools they need to soar and gain access to resources. We also strive to create a safe and supportive space where people can heal from past trauma and learn skills to further their safety and wellbeing. We believe in empowering individuals to break the cycle of violence and create a more equitable society. We seek to create a society where everyone can reach their full potential and live with dignity, regardless of gender, disability, or social status.
Eagles Empowered to Soar, INC. (EEtS) is a 509(a) public charity that was founded in 2017 in response to the growing need for programs and services that empower people living in poverty and exclusion. Despite its formation in 2017, operations did not begin until 2019. We provide a diverse range of programs through our pillars of service, community development and social change. Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of the people we serve and to help them overcome the barriers they face in their everyday lives.
Since our operation in 2019, we have served over 10,500 participants through our various programs. Our programs have helped participants gain the skills and knowledge they need to access government benefits, start and grow their businesses, and become self-sufficient. We have also provided participants with the opportunity to give back to their communities through our community service programs.
We raise awareness of gender-based violence through the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence annually. We also have an annual toy drive for children from vulnerable households. This birthed ORANGE 3-6-5, a campaign to raise awareness around gender-based violence 365 days of the year.
