THE STORY:

Welcome to Team Family Empowerment's page! We are so excited to be in our 4th year running as a charity in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and to start building teams for various races around the country! Team Family Empowerment provides individuals the opportunity to care for at risk, urban families by participating in athletic events for Family Empowerment. It goes beyond participating in an event and raising funds, as participants have the unique opportunity to connect with the children and families they're supporting.

Family Empowerment Centers is located in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. Family Empowerment Centers exists to glorify God and love our neighbors by strengthening young urban families in Christ as we create real opportunities of empowerment and care for the needs of those facing greater challenges in urban America. A major way we do this is through our after-school program offered 5 days a week for the children in the neighborhood. We meet kids at a holistic level, caring for their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and academic needs. We offer full scholarships, relying on our generous donors in order to achieve this. We work with the schools in the neighborhood and the families of our students to bring about hope and change in each child's life and the community as a whole. We also offer free ESL classes to individuals in the neighborhood, computer access for job searching, a safe haven and provision for those in need, pastoral counseling, and neighborhood and family events.
