The collection documents the history, organization, mission and principles of The Foundation for Community Encouragement. It presents the FCE through the eyes of both Sister Ellen Stephen and Dr. M. Scott Peck. Sister Ellen, as FCE board member and workshop leader, personally participated in the creation of many of the documents presented here, and was responsible for collecting and preserving them. Dr. Peck as the founder, visionary, and advisor of the foundation, was also responsible for the creation of many of the documents.
The collection contains a series of publications – pamphlets, flyers, circulars - describing mission and vision of the FCE; articles related to the FCE; a large series of institutional and organizational documents and correspondence; written and recorded FCE history; reports of activities, with special mention for Community Building Workshops Leaders Reports; educational and training material for FCE’s leaders and for workshop participants; and materials related to publicity and memorabilia.
