Grand Openings at the Community Empowerment Center

Posted on May 10, 2017 by Empowerment

In March, the RiseBoro Community Empowerment Center celebrated the opening of two new program locations. Both our Atlas (SEPS) and Level Up! Workforce Development programs have moved into new office spaces to accommodate the growing scope of their advocacy. A special thanks to everyone who attended these events and those who took part in their planning. Both Grand Openings were hugely successful, and a fantastic way to honor the tremendously important work done by both of these programs.
