Erie Neighborhood House
Erie Neighborhood House guided the founding of Erie Elementary Charter School. With 140 years of experience in working to empower low-income immigrant communities, they provide leadership and guidance as EECS grows and works toward its mission.
The mission of Erie Neighborhood House is to promote a just and inclusive society by strengthening low-income, primarily Latino families through skill-building, access to critical resources, advocacy and collaborative action. Erie House offers a range of programs to individuals of all ages, including an onsite After School Program for EECS students.

BUILD’s programs are designed to meet both the immediate problem of preventing at-risk youth from joining gangs as well as working with gang-involved youth to develop alternatives to this destructive lifestyle. Our service population also includes youth who have come in contact with the justice system to prevent and/or provide alternatives to detention and assist with successful re-entry into their communities.
