Two Florida place-based communities will participate in the national ECCS Impact CoIIN. The Miami Children’s Initiative (MCI) in Liberty City is one of three high-need communities designated in 2008 by the state of Florida (F.S. 409.147) as Children’s Initiatives and modeled after the nationally-recognized Harlem Children’s Zone.
MCI has the leadership, capacity, family engagement and community partnerships to successfully test and implement the changes needed to effectively bridge the gap between home visiting and early learning, creating a pipeline to school readiness.
We are currently seeking a second place-based community to implement the ECCS Impact Project.
