Since 2011, Y-Empowerment Inc. has come together to serve the youth of our community who have experienced domestic violence. Y-Empowerment Inc. was started by a small group of individuals who encouraged youth to come together and express themselves through playing music and learning basic music skills, while at the same time, allowing them to get away from issues that they may be facing at home.
While working with the youth that has 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 addressing 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.
