MCIF - Maura Clarke - Ita Ford Center


MCIF Center, established in 1993, is a Center for learning, leadership, organizing, and developing employment and entrepreneurial skills. The mission of MCIF Center is to equip immigrant women with the skills they need to live and work in their new homeland. Currently, MCIF offers programs conducted at two sites in Brooklyn, NY: MCIF Education Program provides five levels of English as a Second Language (ESL), GED in Spanish, computer classes, citizenship classes, and family literacy, and MCIF WORKS Program, a social enterprise that supports hands-on job training and entrepreneurship opportunities in the food service, sewing, and craft industries. The Center is named for two New York City women, Maura Clarke and Ita Ford, who were Maryknoll Sisters killed in El Salvador in 1980 while working to empower people living in poverty. MCIF Center was founded in 1993 out of a desire to continue their commitment to empowerment here, in Brooklyn.
