The Community Empowerment Fund is working to end the racial wealth gap by supporting over 3,000 Members, annually, in reaching their employment, housing, and finance goals. Our approach combines person-centered support with advocacy and financial services that pursue equity. CEF’s work is grounded in recognition of the detrimental impacts of systemic racism on Black and Brown members of our communities and we value the leadership of people with lived experiences with homelessness and poverty.
For 2024 CEF is not a referral agency for Wheels 4 Hope.

The Racial Wealth Gap Within the LGBTQ Community
When I reflect on my work in this role at CEF, I draw energy and renewal from our person-centered approach. Our primary focus is on the individual, regardless of who they are or what they bring to the table. This person-centered ethos resonates deeply with me, especially in my interactions with Members and Advocates.
