“East Durham is an area that has considerable social, economic, and health challenges. But we have to take a step back and emphasize how vibrant the area that we work in is. It’s common for a lot of non-resident experts to start with the long laundry list of everything that’s not going right in the community…but something that has struck me is the strength of community leadership in East Durham.”

Kimberly Fisher, Director of Program Implementation & Community Engagement at the East Durham Children’s Initiative, joins us this week to talk about community leadership, collaboration, and all of EDCI’s wonderful efforts to support families living in “the zone.” Now in its sixth year of operation, EDCI continues to leverage local partnerships to combat the effects of multigenerational poverty in East Durham.
