THE EMPOWERMENT CONNECTION (EC) is a program for anyone 18 years and older who wants to meet, gain support, and develop friendships with other people in a safe, drug-free environment. While social, our program focuses on ways to reduce our community’s burden of HIV and STIs through education, information, and risk-reduction techniques.
We also seek to address social determinants of health such as education, employment, and nutrition to eliminate barriers preventing people from fully engaging in their healthcare. The empowerment connection allows people to participate in fun and exciting social activities including game nights, spoken word/open mic events, health training, and many other empowerment activities that promote a strong, healthy, and safe community. Events are open to all unless noted, here at the EC, we have a space for all!
