Background Statement

Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center, a state accredited Center; (Missouri Accreditation) started in 1986 as a Missouri not-for-profit corporation, urban core program serving 40 low income families and children, foster and adoptive children and children with special needs from birth to seventeen in a home setting. In 1991 we moved to our new and current location to serve 159 children. Within one year we expanded our program to add an additional 45 infants and toddlers bringing our capacity to 212. In 2006 our program expanded its school age program to offer Camp Empowerment. Camp Empowerment is a full day summer program empowering youth ages 5 to 17 to succeed in life, and to be the best they can be. Our program is at optimal capacity. By summer of 2016 we are looking to break ground to build a new facility which will provide space for 365 children birth to four and 150, 5 to 17 years of age. The New facility will allow us to comprise all our sites into one location as well as expand the number of children we can serve. Mentors and tutors work with school aged children after school to improve their literacy and reading skills. Each classroom offers a learning environment that creates curiosity, stimulates growth, allows children to problem solve and make choices, through the use of CREATIVE CURRICULM, a research base curriculum. Our program offers parenting programs and classes to provide families with skills to enable them to continue providing a stimulating environment at home.  Finally our program provides transportation for families that cannot get their children to the center and may need a ride to work or school.  Our organization serves economically disadvantaged students, homeless children, and foster and adoptive children whom encounter enormous barriers -- ranging from poverty, low education attainment, violence and trauma environments and family detachments. We currently serves one hundred and thirty three (133) families of that one hundred and twenty two (122) are single moms with three or more children.  Ninety percent (90%) of these children are in families that have parents that only have a GED, a High School diploma or education up to the tenth grade.  Ninety-nine percent (99%) of our students are eligible for free/reduce lunch. We services eight geographical zip code areas; 64127, 64128, 64129, 64130, 64131, 64132, 64133 and 64110.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center has always been a pillar in this community. Meeting the needs of poor low-income families and at-risk children and ensuring that all children enter school ready, has always been a desire and burden for Mrs. Deborah Mann. As the organization has grown from forty children in a house to 212 children in a three building facility our volunteer board members are more actively involved in the governance and funding issues resulting from the effort to meet the growing needs of the families we serve. Our Strategic Mapping Plan will address the growing need to provide a visual framework on how value gets created from the organization’s internal and learning and growth perspectives. The Board along with the Administrative Staff will work together to provide a concise yet comprehensive description of its organization strategy. With this clarity, we will have an enhanced ability to describe, measure, manage and execute the desired strategy. However with limited funding from the federal and state level, this has increased our dependence upon foundational grants and private sector donations to provided services to our children. With the crisis going on in our community, of crime, increase school drop out rates, underage drug usage and single-family homes with three or more children, more preventive service programs are needed. With our program at optimal capacity and the goal to build a new facility, this has created new challenges for obtaining funding to provide additional services to strengthen families and communities. Through continuous effort of our Board we hope to find donors willing to support our efforts through funding our programs and the building of our new facility in exchange for our NAP Tax Credits. Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center will continue to serve as a Pillar of Light with the hope of changing the lives of hurting and suffering Urban Core families and children.

Organization Comments Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center is a strong self-supporting organization. Over the past twenty-nine years we have been able to support our programs through funding from children receiving childcare assistance. However to continue improving the quality of services and programs offered to families and children we will need the help for private and public organizations and foundations. Outside support would give our program the opportunity to expand the services and serve more families and children.
