Who We Serve
EFCDC cares each weekday for more than 400 children, ages 6 weeks to 13 years. More than 91% of the enrolled families live below the federal poverty guidelines, most far below the guidelines.
About 15% of the children are homeless or near homeless. Many live in battered women's or homeless shelters or transitional living programs. Often, these families sleep on the sofas of friends or relatives, sometimes even living in cars, rundown hotels or abandoned buildings.
There are several critical services no person should live without. EFCDC provides educational programs, healthcare, parent programs and emergency services to the children and families we serve.
