Goals - Four Pillars of Opportunity

EnVision Centers offer support and measure success based on four pillars of opportunity.

Economic Empowerment

The Economic Empowerment pillar is designed to improve the economic sustainability of individuals residing in HUD-assisted housing by empowering them with opportunities to improve their economic outlook.



Educational Advancement

The Education pillar seeks to bring educational opportunities directly to HUD-assisted housing and includes partnering with public and private organizations that approach education in non-traditional ways on non-traditional platforms.

Health and Wellness

The Health and Wellness pillar is designed to improve access to health outcomes by individuals and families living in HUD-assisted housing.

Character and Leadership

The Character and Leadership pillar is designed to enable all individuals and families residing in HUD-assisted housing, especially young people, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens by encouraging participation in volunteer and mentoring opportunities.

Law lectures included topics such as Criminal Law, Trial Advocacy, Tort Law, Civil Procedure , Law School Academia/ Competition Preparation, Family Law, Immigration, Public Office and preparing opening & closing arguments for a mock trial.  

The camp is sponsored by the L. Clifford Davis Legal Association, in partnership with the City of Fort Worth EnVision Center, and held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center. 








Financial Empowerment

The Fort Worth EnVision Center teams up with area agencies to host Financial Empowerment seminars to educate the community on making positive decisions for financial stability and financial well-being. 

The emotional component of personal finances is just as important. When people feel more financially empowered, they feel more confident in making decisions to change the trajectory of their lives. Sessions include steps to help people to overcome financial roadblocks, increase their income, pay off debt, and save for their financial goals.
