The History of the North Capitol Collaborative (NCCI)
NCCI was established in 1997 as a result of the Healthy Families / Thriving Communities Act. Several community organizations like the Associates for Renewal in Education (ARE), Bates Area Civic Association, Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, North Capitol Neighborhood Development, and Center City Community Corporation were significant in the planning of NCCI. Their efforts resulted in North Capitol Collaborative, Inc. receiving its planning grant in May 1997, and its first family services contract in April 1998.
Over the years, NCCI worked diligently to build and enhance its community partnerships to include community residents, police, civic associations and others who have discovered the collaborative model as a powerful vehicle for helping children and families.
NCCI is funded by The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness (TCP) and various private donors.
