The E. Diane Champé Institute (EDCI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to help adult survivors of child abuse and neglect. EDCI will provide neighborhood Centers where survivors can congregate, socialize, and gain life-skills training while building a healthy lifestyle. The Centers will not provide any type of professional therapy as is done in almost every other recovery setting. Instead, the Centers will be places to promote community, connection, and wellness, which the experts have stated is vital to promote engagement with the world.
EDCI Vision Statement: Our vision is a world where adult survivors of child abuse and neglect receive the validation, encouragement, and resources that will empower their healing.
EDCI Mission Statement: Our mission is to facilitate the healing of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect by providing a safe haven, education, training, and resources.
