Miami Children’s Initiative is a 501© (3) nonprofit organization focused on transforming Liberty City into a prosperous community. In partnership with Liberty City’s residents, youth, religious centers, schools, businesses and non-profit organizations, they seek to address the needs of community by investing in children. MCI believes that Liberty City’s strength lies in the undeveloped potential of its youth and that through focused strategic work the potential of each child can be unleashed.

MCI is a comprehensive ‘Cradle to Career’ neighborhood focused initiative with the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty. Over the next decade, MCI’s primary focus is on children ages 0-18 living in Liberty City, bounded to the north and south 79 Street and 41st Street and to the east and west by 7th Avenue and 27th Avenue.
