SEE OUR JOURNEY FROM THE BEGINNING UNTIL NOW

Empowerment Resource Center was established in 2003 and incorporated in 2006 under the legal name of HIV/AIDS Empowerment Resource Center  for Young Women, Incorporated.  Empowerment Resource Center (ERC) is a non-profit organization, with a 501(C)(3) status, whose humble beginnings started with HIV prevention education and screening.  Since its inception, the ERC target population has been underserved and high-risk individuals, with a priority focus on African-American females. Although our passion is to serve individuals who can be characterized as vulnerable, hard to reach, and susceptible to health disparities, our client base has become gradually more diverse.  ERC's humble beginnings as a community clinic providing health education and HIV screening has blossomed to providing clinical screening, treatment and immunization services, family planning services, substance abuse treatment, mental health therapy, psychiatric medication management and much more. 

2003 › ESTABLISHMENT
2003

The Beginning Of The Road

ERC came to fruition when its founder, Jacqueline Brown, was disheartened by the fact that African American women newly-infected with HIV were becoming increasingly younger at a progressively alarming rate. This, along with the tacit approval and reticence of community leaders to accept the status quo, spawned the formation. ERC began by providing HIV counseling, testing and referral services and HIV educational seminars.

2007

ERC Hosted Its 1st Annual Take Charge. Get Tested.™ Health Fair Event

Hundreds of Atlantans participated in the 2008 ERC's first Take Charge. Get Tested. ™ Health Fair event’s food, fun, and festivities. Community partners and volunteers were on hand to provide confidential HIV testing. Two hundred and sixty-four (264) participants received a free rapid HIV test and harm reduction counseling.

2010

Elton John Foundation Grant Was Awarded to Enhance ERC's Repertoire of Clinical Services!
