Description of Agency
Promote economic growth and revitalization through small business development and the creation of employment opportunities in the urban Erie area.
The mission of the Urban Erie Community Development Corporation (UECDC) is to accomplish what is greater by increasing the capacity for economic self-sufficiency through cutting edge educational services and training; by empowering youth to build their skills and grow to their potential; and by inspiring the community to take steps towards creating a better future for its people and organizations.
In 2002 the Urban Erie Community Development Corporation (UECDC) merged with the Reverend E.F. Smith Quality of life Learning Center as a single 501(c)(3). Activities carried out by the UECDC continue under the name “Reverend E.F. Smith Quality of Life Learning Center.” The Rev. E.F. Smith Quality of Life Learning Center (QLLC) was originally created in 1993 as a faith-based organization whose objective was to address the disproportionate amount of poverty and crime concentrated in the Southeast section of the City of Erie.
