For My People Empowerment was established out of a fear of what was happening in our nation. September 11, 2001, was a wake-up call for a number of New York residents and the country as a hold. New Yorkers live in a complacent city where we never thought that we would have planes plowing into buildings wanting to hurt and kill Americans.
February 7, 2008, For My People Empowerment, Inc. was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation and received federal exemption not long after. For My People Empowerment is a volunteer-based emergency preparedness program that provides a leadership training program for the New York community to understand how easy and important it is to be ready and prepared for any type of emergency that one might encounter these emergencies including blackouts, terrorist incidents, and natural disasters and thanks to the volunteers who assist us, communities are able to plan and be prepared with the knowledge needed to know what to do, how to be prepared for the possibility of blackouts, terrorist incidents, and natural disasters.
