It is the mission of Y-Empowerment Inc. to help families who have fallen victims of domestic violence. We strive to help families overcome their adversities and become healthy and supportive survivors through social interaction and education. It is our sole purpose to promote healthy families despite the issues that they may have endured, in a safe and empowering atmosphere
Since 2011, Y-Empowerment Inc. has come together to serve the youth of our community who have fallen victim of domestic violence. Y-Empowerment Inc. was started by a small group of individuals who for the first two years, encourage youth to come together and express themselves through playing music and learning basic music skills, while at the same time, giving them an opportunity to get away from issues that they may be facing at home.
While working with the youth that have come through Y-Empowerment Inc., we saw the need to provide more resources to them than what we were already providing. We saw that our clients would benefit from further mentoring and programs that would target the needs of the entire family. We decided to focus on address the issues that families have been impacted with, while promoting and encouraging families to move past their transgressions into a new life journey and break the life cycles of further victimization that many families have fallen to.
It is our goal for 2015 to be readily available, to provide resources for families using; referrals to other agencies, educational retreats, and numerous other tools that will benefit domestic violence victims. Safety is one of the most important needs of families dealing with domestic violence issues. Y-Empowerment Inc. thrives to provide families with the proper resources, education and ministries to enable them to exercise the safest situation for them, while keeping the proper confidentiality that is needed to protect all people involved.
