EMPOWERMENT ACADEMY, INC.
Locally and statewide, EA is a social services advocate. We are organized to help improve the lives of others through housing, social, educational, and financial initiatives that will empower children and families and strengthen communities.
Our Outreach team is currently working on providing Wind Mitigation to low-income, disabled, and senior homeowners in Duval County. We want to expand the families we help beyond what the FEMA grant funds will allow.
We welcome volunteers at all times. The need is constant and great.
There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life.
– Mary Rose McGeady
