What We Do

Empower Family Focused Services (EFFS)  has evolved over many years and aims to play a key role in holistically improving the social, educational, health, cultural spiritual and civic life of the underserved communities in general, and the East African population in particular.  The multilayered support provided by EFFS includes:

Empowering young children to become the next leaders.  With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. 

Empowering families & immigrant community members to lead meaningful and dignified lives and assisting them to assimilate and build connections in America.

Healthcare Support

·        EFFS understands the social stressors and various unique challenges the youth and immigrant families go through. Stereotyping and mental health stigma are prevalent in the immigrant communities. We address mental health issues by proactively educating the youth and families in various settings to prevent major physical and behavioral health crises.

·        EFFS works in addressing and narrowing the healthcare inequalities among the immigrant community with a whole person wellness approach. We identify resources and educate the community to access services (chronic health management, OPIOID and other crises))

·        EFFS creates awareness in fighting preventable diseases and actively helps the community during pandemic outbreaks in accordance with federal regulations and State guidelines. Our approach to the immigrant community will be in culturally appropriate ways.

 We help youth access resources to help them become the next responsible leaders who can play key roles in transforming themselves, their community and the world. We empower and equip families with life and parenting skills through family focused workshops.
