What We Do
The all-volunteer board of Empower4Life plans, organizes and operates resource drives, the delivery of material goods to our partner homeless shelters, and the fundraisers that help enable us (along with your generous support) to work diligently to fulfill our mission.
Most importantly, we strive to establish trusting, supportive relationships with children in the shelters so that our efforts to share important knowledge in our lessons and programs are met with an eager and enthusiastic acceptance. We seek to guide our young friends to a balanced life that attends to the needs of their bodies and minds while nurturing the spirit of optimism, compassion and joy that will sustain them through adversity.
Every child, regardless of circumstance, deserves the opportunity to grow up strong and healthy. Just as a young seedling needs the sun, water and earth to become a great oak, these children need trust, hope and love to become healthy and happy adults.
Here at Empower4Life, we are dedicated to helping every child we meet grow strong. We know that in doing so, we make our communities, even our world, better places.
Empower4Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves to teach children to develop the skills needed to be healthy and productive in school, feel empowered to overcome challenges they face, and inspired to learn, grow and succeed the rest of their lives.
We believe in the power of education to transform the minds and lives of children. Empower4Life believes we can decrease the negative health impacts of homelessness on children by providing structured fitness activities and wellness education.
The values our educators attempt to embody when working with children are enthusiasm, compassion, patience, wisdom, honesty, generosity, respect, responsibility, integrity and courage. These are the values we hope the children will emulate as they learn to be industrious and successful kids who are aware of the importance of balance and optimism as they pursue a lifetime of health and happiness.
