EMPOWER, standing for Economic Mobility Places Ownership within Everyone’s Reach, provides trainings, workshops, and personalized coaching to ensure that Riverside families have the tools they need to achieve financial freedom and build generational wealth.
EMPOWER advances our community by investing in Riverside’s human capital. Paired with its companion project, RESTORE, which invests in physical capital, EMPOWER supports the development of the skills, knowledge, and behaviors necessary to attain economic mobility and financial independence.
When and individual or family begins the EMPOWER program they are first introduced to their Navigational Coach who gives a brief assessment to determine what type of assistance is needed. After the assessment, your Navigational Coach will create an individualized service plan that assists individuals in achieving their personal goals and develop generational wealth. Services include:
