Abstract

Social welfare is still a problem in Indonesia. Including in the Sukarame sub-district, Bandar Lampung, where every year the number of poor people increases. To reduce poverty, the government provides a solution by making many programs, one of which is the Family Hope Program. However, many programs that are claimed by both the government and the private sector (companies) as community development, however, in reality are not able to lift the community to become self-sufficient. This means that no matter how many programs are launched, they are not directly proportional to the impact on community economic empowerment and independence. This paper aims to describe the empowerment of the Islamic community in the Harapan Keluarga program using qualitative methods. The theory used is the theory of community empowerment which has 3 variables namely enabling, empowering, and protecting. The results show that PKH in its duties and functions opens the possibility for beneficiaries to develop by means of education and mentoring to broaden their horizons. Then also through this assistance PKH strengthens the potential of the community through concrete steps involving the provision of various inputs and opening up various opportunities that will make beneficiaries more empowered and also protect and defend the interests of beneficiaries by fighting for their rights without illegal levies.
