Mission Statement


The P.W. Enhancement Center (PWEC) is a 501(c) non-profit organization operating a comprehensive program, which includes emergency rental assistance, motel vouchers, a food bank, substance abuse counseling, resource referrals, employment assistance, a computer lab, life skills training, and financial planning to help ease the difficult transition from homelessness to independence.

Description


The PWEC is currently the only organization offering these supportive services to the homeless population of Moreno Valley. Moreno Valley presently has no emergency shelters or transitional housing and very few affordable housing units, which means that those that are homeless, in transition, or low-income must rely on the services in Riverside. The PWEC is also currently the only agency in Moreno Valley that provides motel vouchers, which is necessary because of the lack of emergency shelters in our community. Motel vouchers provide overflow emergency beds and serves as an extension of the Continuum of Care, and are used in conjunction with collaborations with local services to house clients until shelter beds are available. The PWEC was created in order to provide services that specifically address the needs of our community. The goal of the center is to move men and women from homelessness to self-sufficiency. The center often commonly provides services to men and women dealing with dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse. Staff provides support moving toward economic self-sufficiency, job placement, and permanent housing. The center provides supportive services while these men and women stabilize and acquire the skills needed for independent living. PROGRAMS & SERVICES **VOLUNTEERS NEEDED** Bread of Heaven Food Bank Program The PWEC provides a food bank that now serves approximately 2,000 residents annually. The food bank program provides residents with basic, non-perishable food staples and food vouchers. Applicants must meet minimum eligibility requirements. These services are provided Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Employment Assistance Program The PWEC provides a self-paced, year-round employment assistance program for job training and placement. The center provides weekly employment listings from various companies and agencies in the Inland Empire. Computer Lab A computer lab is also available on-site to provide access to the Internet and word processing software to those that do not have access to a computer to enhance their job search. Computers are available to conduct job searches, practice typing proficiency, learn basic computer skills, and complete or update resumes and cover letters.
