The Homeless Empowerment Project Mission
To empower the economically disadvantaged in Greater Boston through self-employment, skill development, and self-expression.
To reshape public perception of homeless and poverty.
To present by our own example that homelessness and economically disadvantaged people with the proper resources, empowerment, opportunity, and encouragement are capable of creating change for ourselves in society.
To produce a product that homeless and low income people can sell with dignity and through which they can showcase their talents and tell their stories.
