“Our mission is to enhance individuals’ empowerment skills so that they can take self-reliant actions to improve their quality of life and contribution to their community,” Callwood said. “Success of this grassroots nonprofit, nondenominational organization is due to the love for people evidenced by its volunteers and supporters. Our clients continue to grow from hardship into self-confident and self-reliant individuals.”
