The Community Health and Empowerment Network, Inc works to strengthen South Florida’s under-served and low-income communities by reducing health disparities. This is accomplished through a vast array of health and empowerment services encouraged, supported, and advanced by strategic community partnership and collaboration.
The Community Health and Empowerment Network, Inc. (C.H.E Network, Inc.) is a not for profit, 501(c)(3) organization established in 2015 that provides charitable empowerment and health services to the under-served and low-income population to address health disparities in South Florida. We offer educational courses and services to help the under-served populations develop healthier habits and lifestyles. We seek to collaborate with individuals, corporations, and organizations to continue provide support for services that we do not provide ourselves. By offering collaborative services, we maintain a unified effort for our programs. In addition, we offer assistance to support other small community based organizations in the Network to help them maintain their services in the community through technical assistance and capacity building.
Services we provide include: Health education classes, fitness programs for women and their families, screenings service for preventive care, HIV/STD youth education, financial literacy workshops, youth education and training.
