Beacon of Hope Crisis Center
Individual empowerment is a process of development for each individual person. It involves developing skills and abilities and a more positive definition of ones self.
Achieving individual empowerment is realized by having a better feeling about yourself, a sense of more self-respect and self-esteem.
If you want a simple mantra - Individual Empowerment means 'becoming powerful'.
To become personally empowered...We must be able to answer...what are my personal values, what are my skills and goals... then do I want, really want, personal empowerment and am I motivated and prepared to adjust my behavior in order to achieve my goals.
If you or someone you know is in need of personal empowerment to move beyond circumstances caused by domestic violence into a fully realized state of independence and sustainability Beacon of Hope is here for you!
Beacon of Hope Crisis Center works directly with clients needing services for domestic violence and sexual assault.
