EMBERS doesn’t give handouts. EMBERS gives a hand. EMBERS empowers individuals to overcome their difficulties.
EMBERS has greatly assisted with finding suitable employment, as well as helped with my self esteem and confidence. Before EMBERS, I was feeling very disappointed with myself as well feeling a lot of self doubt. Thanks to EMBERS that has all changed for the better.
EMBERS has had a great impact on my life, giving me jobs and opportunities while meeting new people, connections and friends. They are a terrific staff with stable and wise support for others.
