Women’s Empowerment Services of NE Florida
Women’s Empowerment Services of NE Florida

The mission of Women’s Empowerment Services of NE  Florida, Inc is to empower women who are in disadvantaged positions, due to various life events, with the skills and confidence necessary to get a job, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children.

The program acts as a referral resource for available services through state and local sources for education, employment assistance, health, housing referral and child care subsidies, to name a few. There are thousands of programs available to women in northeast Florida.

Our goal is to bring women together with those resources based upon each woman's individual needs. Every woman deserves an opportunity to be strong, independent and self sufficient, that is to be EMPOWERED.

Rotary's Camp Florida

Rotary’s Camp Florida is a barrier-free, ADA-compliant camp in Brandon, Florida.  The 21-acre camp was built in 1955 as a church camp, and was acquired by Rotary Clubs throughout Florida in 1991. Rotary began a restoration program allowing the camp to meet full standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act and pose no barriers to the groups that use it.

Rotary’s Camp Florida, Inc. is unique by offering special needs user groups the ability to rent our entire 21-acre facility, allowing them to tailor each of their camps to suit the specific needs of the children and adults they serve. Camp fees for special needs children and adults are sponsored by their groups and the Camp’s Memory Maker Scholarship Fund.  Learn more at their website https://rotaryscampflorida.org
