Ethiopian Community Development Council - ECDC


The Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC) is an independent, non-profit, community-based organization. Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, the mission of ECDC is to resettle refugees and to promote cultural, educational, and socioeconomic development programs in the refugee and immigrant community. As part of this mission, ECDC seeks to strengthen individual and community development through health programs that focus on helping African newcomers access and utilize needed health services by focusing on health promotion and early intervention activities. Originally organized in 1983 to respond to the needs of a growing Ethiopian community in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, ECDC quickly expanded to serve refugees and immigrants from many cultural backgrounds, while maintaining a focus on African newcomers. Over the past 20 years, ECDC has assisted over 140,000 people striving to become self-sufficient productive members of their new homeland.
