Who We Are


Building Communities, Educating Families, Providing the Foundation for a Better Future.


Empower Community Development Corporation’s mission is to work with ALICE households to provide access to quality housing and tools to help them sustainably thrive.


Empower Community Development Corporation’s vision is that our communities prosper.

How We Accomplish Our Mission:

Building Communities 

Through social activities, such as book clubs, holiday gatherings, children’s crafts, and story time, as well as on-site daycare centers, we strive to build a cohesive environment where area families feel comfortable and take pride in maintaining their community.

Providing the Foundation for a Better Future 

By expanding the knowledge and comfort level that individuals and families have with a variety of work-related skills, we can help broaden our families' opportunities and empower each member with practical skills to help them achieve their goals. With a variety of training programs including medical assistant and accounting specialist training, our class attendees are more equipped to seek better jobs and continue their education, so that they will be role models for their families and communities.

  • The Bookworm Bus is a state-of-the-art mobile library with a grassroots approach to visiting communities throughout Waller and surrounding counties. Barriers created by poverty, limited opportunities, limited English, and lack of transportation are alleviated by taking library programs, resources, and services directly to neighborhoods and schools. Committed to delivering books, fun, and fellowship, our routes travel the rural farm roads of Brookshire, Pattison, and Hempstead, Texas, and beyond. We continue to develop reading programs, storytime and reading scavenger hunts, and creative activities for all reading levels. The bus is a beacon of hope in building tomorrow’s readers.
