The Brookland-Lakeview Empowerment Center provides a support system for families in the Columbia area as well as residents of other counties that are in need. The Center serves to improve the quality of life for adults of all ages by creating programs and activities that are not currently available to them. We maintain a safe and attractive environment where seniors can congregate to fulfill many of their social, physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs. For the youth and teens in our community, the Center is where they can participate in organized recreation, cultural events, and educational programs.  The Center is a focal point for civic and cultural engagement that promotes economic, social and spiritual empowerment to residents of the Midlands and beyond. It is also a resource for regional businesses and corporations, non-profit organizations, P-12 educators and colleges and universities in the area.
