The Community Enrichment Center: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Family Violence
Today we want to introduce you to an organization that has been making a significant impact in our community. The Fort Worth Community Enrichment Center assists and empowers victims of family violence, homelessness, and poverty in Tarrant County. Their efforts have changed many lives and helped guide them toward a brighter future filled with hope and God’s love.
Providing Hope for Families in the Community
For the past 30 years, the CEC has been helping families and individuals undergoing a crisis create the stability they need. They do this through various means, such as financial coaching, offering safe housing and basic food necessities, as well as high school equivalency and employment readiness counseling. Their efforts have provided practical results and much-needed hope that has guided families out of their poverty and family violence cycles.
CEC Empowers People Through Collaborations With Programs to Help
Food: Every year, the CEC provides over 90,000 meals to families and low-income people that need help.
Housing: The stability of CEC-owned and managed housing provides a place of safety for low-income families, victims of domestic violence, and people experiencing homelessness.
Employment and Financial Coaching: The CEC provides counseling so individuals and families can learn to improve their income, save money, and increase their credit scores.
Adult Education: Adults can earn their High School Equivalency through the CEC and get college application assistance. They can improve their job skills and start on a new path to success.
