Employ to Empower
Employ to Empower (ETE) is a social enterprise centered around employment as a realistic and long-term solution to drastically reduce homelessness. ETE connects individuals experiencing poverty in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside to meaningful employment that reflects their dream jobs.
ETE believes that employment is an important pillar of health and wellbeing for many individuals as it provides purpose, dignity and connection to the DTES community. By providing individualized holistic support to low income individuals, ETE bridges the economic gap in Vancouver’s DTES – the poorest postal code in Canada all while helping low income individuals live out their passion.
