The MCI was first established in 2006 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. According to its website, the vision of the MCI is to create a prosperous Liberty City by transforming the lives of children and working to help families obtain the resources needed to grow strong and achieving children. The nonprofit is one of three large-scale social change efforts in the state of Florida modeled after the nationally known Harlem Children’s Zone.
