Community Resources


A thank you letter will be given to donors with an itemized listing that can be used as a tax credit for charitable contributions.

Donations are constantly needed for both EmPower and EmPower Works students to enable them to be dressed appropriately for job interviews, new job hires, or internships. EmPower and EmPower Works house a clothing closet just for this reason and are always in need of business type apparel. We take all sizes but prefer the clothing to be current fashions and in larger sizes.  We also accept gently used dress shoes, unopened make-up and hygiene products, costume jewelry, backpacks, and school supplies.  Children and Infant's clothing, shoes, and accessories are also welcomed.

Internships begin during college classes or when a student begins the job search phase following the completion of training. Often students are hired at their internship site or as a result of connections made while interning.  Types of internship sites vary as we attempt to place each student with a site that best meets their skills and previous work experience.  Some examples are:

General, Medical, Law, and Academic offices
Social Services and Non-Profit locations
Retail, Display, and Customer Service locations

The EmPower Program provides students with the opportunity to combine their training curriculum and job readiness skills with current work experience. When successful, students are placed in internships with local businesses and organizations to gain valuable and recent work experience.  A much needed boost on their resume is gained and a quality letter of recommendation can be obtained.

The EmPower Works Program provides students with the opportunity to combine their job readiness skills with current work experience. Students are placed in an internship with local businesses and organizations to provide a much needed boost to their resume with current work experience. This partnership combines classroom experience with actual work experience which allows students to create a positive work ethnic as well as an updated work history.
