Empower “U” is centrally located in Miami’s Liberty City, a low-income minority neighborhood, at 7900 NW 27th Avenue, Suite E-12, in the Northside Shopping Centre. The neighborhood income is lower than that of Miami-Dade County, Florida, and less than half of that of the United States as a whole. Residents are negatively impacted by high rates of unemployment, homelessness, high school drop-out, crime, illegal drug use and sales, teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS. Many residents are uninsured or underinsured. These factors influence poor health outcomes.
