The purpose of the Women’s Economic Empowerment Center is to provide support and training to women (and men) in the areas of financial management, small business development, and career enhancement. We empower individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds, particularly those who are socially and economically disadvantaged, through comprehensive courses and counseling.
