East Durham Children's Initiative

The Mission
EDCI’s mission is to create a pipeline of high-quality services from birth through high school graduation for children and families living in a 120-block area of East Durham. More than 40 partner organizations and hundreds of community members work collaboratively with EDCI to help us achieve that mission.

The Vision
To have all children in the EDCI Zone graduate from high school, ready for college or career.

How We Work
Through this collaboration with community members and partner organizations, EDCI develops and coordinates services to meet the needs of children living in the Zone and surrounding areas.

EDCI’s pipeline of services includes early childhood interventions, parent and family support, afterschool and summer programs, health and nutrition services, and community outreach.

Founded in 2008, EDCI is an innovative nonprofit located in the heart of a 120-block service area in East Durham, North Carolina. EDCI impacts the lives of hundreds of children and families that live in or attend schools in the EDCI Zone.
