EmPower All LLC. is a team of proven international professionals specializing in grassroots organizing, advocacy, and urban planning. We are a diverse team of professionals with in-depth knowledge and experience who network effectively with various government departments, public and private agencies, schools, social service agencies, courts, and grassroots organizations to provide a range of supportive services.
We are a community-based business continuously engaging in our neighborhoods. We provided free community activities such as “Meet You Where You’re At” educational pop ups, as well as paid-consulting services to help community members navigate their own ventures in building sustainable lives.
WHAT WE DO
We encourage our community, showing that we care about their growth and the lives of their families. We expose new possibilities and opportunities, forging relationships to create an effective, holistic impact. EmPower All and Partners continuously work to engage our neighborhoods through activities like our Community Walks, Barber Shop tours, and Information Pop-Ups. When citizens take action on the information provided the community begins to transform and the person affected is empowered to take control of their own life.
We work with community partners to identify opportunities for families. Our dedicated and passionate team surrounds the community with mentoring, intensive in-home therapy, and support groups to address their needs of “self”.
Our team educates and trains, how to identify and address socio-economic issues in their communities. Our participants engage with their neighbors and civic institutions, as well as hold leadership workshops and facilitate peer-to-peer conversations.
We empower our community to become change agents in their own neighborhoods. We provide educational training on the art of conversation and lead educational community walks throughout several low-income to assist in bridging the communication gap in disenfranchised neighborhoods.
MEET OUR TEAM.
Founder & President
During her service as a community liaison for the Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) grant, Yugonda experienced the lack of communication in her own disenfranchised neighborhood. She began walking door-to-door discussing reliable resources with neighbors. Yugonda found her passion was for not only organizing, but also connecting services to the people who need them most. She applied her community organizing, teaching and real life experiences, continued to learn and grow in her journey to provide equity in information and opportunities, overcame adversity and emerged as a Community Connector and Engagement Specialist. From these humble beginnings, love and tenacity, grew EmPower All.
