Puerto Rican Community Day Care Center: NJHI -- Enhancing community agency's capacity

Deliverables include completion of the organizational assessment, development and implementation of a capacity enhancement strategy, and reports documenting progress toward the strategy's implementation. Prior to strategy implementation, a revised work plan and budget revision will be submitted for the second phase of funding.PRCDCC has a $1.3 million annual operating budget and has served the City of Trenton for 35 years. It is a trusted community-based organization. While narrow in their programmatic focus, this longstanding organization wants to expand their services to further meet their community's needs.
