What is a Promise Neighborhood?

“Promise Neighborhoods” are vibrant and thriving where children are ready for school, go to good schools and have strong systems of family and community support that allow them to attain an excellent education, graduate from high school and go on to college and a successful career.

Attitudes and experiences are changing in the Central Promise Neighborhood, in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. Watch a video, Mr. President: Come visit us in Cleveland!! that highlights this or a slideshow of Promise Neighborhood events and activities so far this year.
