Empowerment


We are building the future together


At EMCC we believe not just in serving our community but in building agency, skills, and relationships that have life-long, community-wide impact. The challenges we face are many, and we are better equipped to lift up our community if we are able to build institutions, businesses, and young people who can build our collective self-reliance and self-determination to meet our community’s needs.
