  • Our mission is “Helping People Get Along Better.” Our vision is to live in a country where people of different beliefs and backgrounds work together with openness and kindness to solve our nation’s most difficult social problems.

    EFCT seeks out and invests over the long-term in a diverse group of partners who leverage evidence-based approaches that provide opportunities for individuals to develop and practice empathy and inclusivity at every stage of life through nurturing environments, supportive relationships, and formative experiences. In early childhood, when parents and primary caregivers provide consistent and responsive care to young children, they create nurturing relationships that are critically important for healthy development. Just as a child learns to speak through listening and being spoken to, they also learn to be caring and empathic through nurturing and dependable acts of kindness and love. Our partners are implementing strategies to strengthen these bonds at the earliest stages of life, setting children up for success in school and beyond.
