Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The P.W. Enhancement Center (PWEC) is a non profit community based organization whose mission is to provide bundle services under one umbrella to help people who are homeless, less fortunate and underprivileged, and to enhance the quality of life for the betterment of the community.
Our vision is to build a multifaceted facility that houses long-term, wraparound services, including, but not limited to: emergency shelter, employment services, youth education, homeless prevention, substance abuse counseling, basic life skills, food services, permanent housing and other needed resources.
The P.W. Enhancement Center (PWEC) is a 501(c) non-profit organization operating a comprehensive program, which includes emergency rental assistance, motel vouchers, a food bank, substance abuse counseling, resource referrals, employment assistance, a computer lab, life skills training, and financial planning to help ease the difficult transition from homelessness to independence.
PWEC provides services to low-income individuals and families in Moreno Valley and Riverside County since 1997. The PWEC is currently the only organization offering these supportive services to the homeless population of Moreno Valley. Moreno Valley presently has no emergency shelters or transitional housing and very few affordable housing units, which means that those that are homeless, in transition, or low-income must rely on the services in neighboring cities. The PWEC was created in order to provide services that specifically address the needs of our community.
The goal of the center is to create and promote a continuum of care and treatment practices that help individuals eliminate barriers of homelessness, criminal behavior, unemployment, and family issues. PWEC strives to move men and women from homelessness to self-sufficiency. The center often commonly provides services to men and women dealing with dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse. Staff provides support moving toward economic self-sufficiency, job placement, and permanent housing. The center provides supportive services while these men and women stabilize and acquire the skills needed for independent living.
