Empowerment Place

Do you need help searching for jobs or applying for affordable housing? Are you eligible for food assistance, but not sure where to start? We can help!

Visit our new Empowerment Place to get connected with a variety of critical support services. We can help in a variety of ways by either directly providing services or connecting you with specific resources.

We’re happy to connect you to these resources:

  • Access to job boards, resume help and job application assistance
  • Basic Food application (also known as SNAP or food stamps)
  • Low-income housing search and application
  • Affordable childcare
  • Transportation
  • Health care
  • Recovery treatment
  • Immediate needs, such as food or clothing
  • Benefits Planning
  • DVR/DDA application assistance
  • Domestic violence resources
  • Plus many more!


The professional, experienced staff in our Empowerment Place are here to connect individuals with a broad array of needed community supports. Through our vast partnerships with local agencies, we will help you find the resources you need to be successful.

Staff will guide you through an easy in-take assessment process to determine which support services are most critical. After you’re connected with the resources you need, our staff will periodically check-in to see how you’re doing. Our goal is that you walk out our doors equipped with the supports and resources you need to thrive in all aspects of your life. There is no cost for using our Empowerment Place. No appointments are necessary – walk-ins welcome!

Visit Empowerment Place at Columbia Industries
