Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.


America faces a crisis. We are in danger of losing our next generation of young people and their contributions to society as increasing numbers of low-income youth are dropping out or falling behind in school, cannot find a job, are in the foster care or juvenile justice system, or are otherwise at risk of not living up to their potential. The economic costs as well as the human costs are great. Our high rate of youth unemployment, our low ranking in international educational surveys, our swollen prison population and other indicators warn that America is also losing comparative advantages in a highly competitive global marketplace.


EMCF does not accept unsolicited proposals.
