The Emerge Emancipation Program is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping young men and women leaving foster care. We aim to help these youth take the right steps and make the right decisions and help them gain the skills necessary to become productive members of society.
Our mission is to provide a place where emancipated foster youth can reach their full potential through vocational training, life skills enrichment, and wrap-around services that include temporary housing at the Emerge Recovery & Trade Initiative, located at 2960 W. Enon Road.
Our Campus Is the Former Green County Career Center
We are proud to plant our roots where the Green County Career Center once laid. Emerge is located at 2960 W. Enon Road in Xenia Township, between Fairborn, Beavercreek, and Xenia. The Emerge Center includes four buildings, all built between 1967 and 2003, with recent renovations.
In August of 2020, the Greene County Career Center moved to a new facility on Innovation Drive. This large multi-functional commercial property features 48 acres with four buildings totaling around 290,000 square feet indoors. Our campus also includes seven acres of asphalt parking and driveways, a fitness center, three large kitchens, dozens of classrooms, office spaces, meeting rooms, dining areas, shops, locker rooms and restrooms, an auditorium, a recording studio, a very scenic four-acre pond, and much more.
