In 2013, the St. Louis Empowerment Center began implementing an employment program designed to assist participants as they seek and eventually maintain employment.  Participants in this program attend a weekly employment group and benefit from the services of an on-site employment specialist who provides one-on-one guidance during the job-search process. 


The St. Louis Empowerment Center is staffed by consumer workers, many of whom started out as program participants. Four full-time prosumer employees, who have education and/or experience commensurate to a bachelor’s degree in addition to being a consumer of mental health services, provide day-to-day coverage and training for the entry level paraprofessional psotions throughout the program. These paraprofessionals function as program assistants for many different programs at the St. Louis Empowerment Center.
