Empower “U”, Inc. Community Health Center is centrally located in Liberty City, Miami, a low-income minority neighborhood, at 7900 NW 27th Avenue, Suite E-12 in the Northside Shopping Center. The neighborhood income is lower than that of any other in Miami-Dade County 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-outs, crime, illegal drug use and sales, teen pregnancy and HIV/AIDS. Many residents are uninsured or underinsured. These factors influence poor health outcomes.
