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. It is our conviction that all people, from every nation of the world are of equal value and concern before God. It is also our conviction that although mankind is of equal value before God, often times the opportunities for empowerment and freedom are selective due to issues of systemic and personal injustices. Family Empowerment Centers will seek to bring a balance to these circumstances by loving our neighbors in a Christ like manner and creating opportunities for those who are disadvantaged in our urban communities to attain empowerment and freedom. It is also our conviction that real empowerment, freedom and wholistic growth has its foundation in an individuals experience of the love of Christ, through His body the church, and the truths found in the Scriptures. Family Empowerment Centers recognizes mankind as spiritual, physical, psychological and social beings. By coming along side individuals in a wholistic and Christ like fashion we expect these individuals to have maximized opportunities of empowerment and a greater hope in the future. The element of Christian faith in what we do, how we do it in creating opportunities of empowerment, and who we do it for is what sets our organization apart from others. Family Empowerment Centers has chosen to target urban communities on the basis that these communities tend to include people from all of the nations of the world and at the same time seems to be the epicenter for injustice, inequality, and issues of poverty. In the same manner that trends move out from major metropolitan cities our organization believes that as people are empowered they too may move out from urban communities to various world destinations creating change in their environments. Family Empowerment Centers also recognizes that the family unit is the most influential determinant in the growth of the individual. Great attention will be given to the growth of the whole family when possible. Our organization defines family as a multi-individual group of people, often times made up of a father, mother, and child, but not limited to those roles in which the group bears the relational characteristics of a family. Therefore the family could be traditional in nature, be a single parent home, be a home with no children, be a home where a significant other (i.e. grandmother, aunt, uncle) is raising the children, or a foster home situation.

The developing world needs help in getting adequate food, water, and medical aid. These are necessary causes. However, there are over 300 million children walking barefoot in the world, and healthy feet are needed to access water, food, and education. We have found a way to help save a child's life with well-fitting shoes that make healthier feet possible.
