The House of the Good Shepherd, a Chicago area shelter for displaced women and children affected by domestic violence will present author, empowerment expert and 3-time Emmy Award winner Mark Fournier with their Humanitarian Award for his unique contributions in the field of family violence and abuse. About Mark Fournier.
As founder of the Fournier Center for Empowerment (a public charity based in the Chicago area) Fournier donates his empowering tools and programs such as his Course of Action to non-profit organizations (including the House of the Good Shepherd) in order to help further their mission of permanently instilling hope, self confidence and other life enhancing character traits in those who have deeply suffered the effects of domestic abuse.
The 101st annual brunch, auction and fundraiser provides ongoing support for the services and programs of the House of the Good Shepherd. The event will be held on Sunday, November 2nd in the Grand Ballroom at the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel. The event will feature Fournier as keynote speaker, where he will share samples of his profoundly inspirational insights, followed by a book signing. A silent auction begins at 12:00 noon with complimentary bar. Brunch and live auction will follow at 1:30 in the afternoon. This extraordinary annual event is hosted by the House of the Good Shepherd Women's Board.

The Fournier Center for Empowerment routinely gifts charities with its coveted 'Empowerment for Life' award. This award entitles staff and 'guests' at the House of the Good Shepherd with free scholarships and trainers for the Course of Action (a comprehensive 12-week program designed to empower participants to gain significantly greater control over their lives and happiness). The program was created by Chicago area resident Mark Fournier who is also the founder of the Center for Empowerment public charity.
Says Fournier: "We team up with qualifying non-profit organizations gifting our Course of Action to their staff, volunteers and clients. It has proven to be remarkably successful in augmenting the healing of those affected by domestic abuse while helping the partnering agency equip its staff and clients with empowering tools for creating happier, more effective and fulfilling lives." The fact that the Course of Action was created for ANY individual from corporate employees, network marketers and parents to homemakers and students, augments its effectiveness in this arena. The primary purpose of the Empowerment for Life Award is to:
- Go far beyond traditional treatment for the clients of non-profit organizations (such as the House of the Good Shepherd), by offering lifetime empowering principles, coaching and support to abused women and children, homeless families and others who might significantly benefit from greater levels of self-worth, a better understanding of human nature and an ongoing empowerment support network.
- Empower the staff & volunteers of non-profit organizations with self improvement tools so they will be able to operate more effectively within the organization as well as in their own personal lives.
- Function as an additional benefit & incentive to the staff and volunteers of organizations in order to increase 'volunteer enrollment and retention'.
- Create empowered and inspirational parents, leaders, coaches, guides and mentors.
- Help conquer fear, overcome overwhelm, develop empowering habits and character traits, master self esteem, confidence, self love, compassion, self belief, wellbeing, inner peace, health, fitness and hope.
