Community Empowerment Resources
We are a team of mindfully respectful professionals.
Our nonprofit [501(c)(3)] Community-based Case Management service helps people diagnosed with a mental illness to cope better with life. Many of our clients are diagnosed with mental illness and substance abuse; many are homeless. We attempt to help them re-link with service providers in the community in an attempt to live a more normal life. CER works with the State of Hawaii Department of Health and with insurance companies such as Ohana Health Plan. We have also newly introduced our Integrated Health and Wellness Clinic.
Mission: To provide progressive and inclusive health care, empowering individuals to lead fuller lives.
Vision: Community Empowerment Resources will distinguish itself as a leader in redefining community care. We envision local, state, and national agendas in which individuals with psychiatric challenges are accorded normal rights and status as full members of the community. Stigma is a thing of the past, and the community understands and accepts that psychiatric symptoms are a normal part of the human experience.
