The Springfield Promise Neighborhood is a place based and asset based poverty alleviation project focused on children and families. Founded in 2010, our focus has expanded to include the neighborhoods and schools in an area we call the Promise Zone.
Children are at the center of our mission at Promise; their needs shape our initiatives. We founded the Lincoln Promise Community Learning Center and the Springfield Promise Zone to the serve them.
A Healthy Community is vital to the success of our students. Together with neighborhood groups like the Springfield Promise Neighborhood Association, and over 60 partner agencies and churches, we work to help strengthen the neighborhoods on the south side of Springfield.
Raising healthy children is the effort of the community. Promise works to aid Parents in preparing their kids for school and life. Together we are developing bonds to support and uplift our families by providing opportunities to learn, grow, and play together.
