Magnolia Community Initiative


The Magnolia Community Initiative (MCI) is a ground-breaking model for large-scale community mobilization and transformation where children, living in the most vulnerable neighborhoods, break all records of success in their education, health milestones, the nurturing they receive from their family, and the economic stability of their family. This is an innovative collaborative effort of over 70 faith based and community groups, organizations and public agencies, dedicated to improving outcomes for children in a five square mile (500 blocks) area crossing the Pico-Union, West Adams and the North Figueroa Corridor neighborhoods just south west of downtown Los Angeles. The Initiative’s key strategy is to build neighborhood resiliency and civic engagement; it goes beyond the traditional multi-service strategy.
