Organization Overview: Empowerment Systems was established as non-profit Pinal Gila Behavioral Health Association in 1990. Serving as the Regional Behavioral Health Authority for Arizona’s Gila and Pinal counties, we created and managed a comprehensive network of mental health and substance abuse services in the two county region. In 2005 the State of Arizona decided to take a different approach, awarding the contract to a for profit company. After a year of transition we reorganized, restructured and renamed ourselves Empowerment Systems, Inc. Aimed at using our resources wisely, we broadened our focus from behavioral health to overall health education and wellness. We continue as a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt non-profit corporation, partnering and collaborating with other community based organizations to improve the lives of the people we serve.
