When a hard times, crisis, or trauma happens, it can lead to a downward spiral or it can also be an opportunity for growth and change. In our experience, some people are knocked over and have a hard time getting back up but some grow stronger from their experience.
EPCARES consists of individuals across the city committed to coming alongside those who feel stuck, alone, or are vulnerable to exploitative or unhealthy relationships and trauma. Team members go homeless shelters, do street outreach, visit strip clubs, and meet with individuals across the county to bring resources and help with steps forward.
Our EPCARES family is made up of survivors, victim advocates, nurses, social workers, life coaches, counselors, teachers and more who have experience and training in trauma and healing. We also collaborate with several other organizations in El Paso to be able to best support anyone wanting help to take steps forward.
The number one factor in resilience is strong healthy supportive relationships and we focus on connecting people with healthy community! Our goal is that nobody we meet ever believes the lie that they are worth"less".
Prayer, guidance by the Holy Spirit, and unconditional love with healthy boundaries are the pillars of EPCARES.
