Promise Neighborhoods are aspirational neighborhoods committed to the success of children, from cradle to career.
Each neighborhood strives to mobilize its unique assets—people, businesses, programs and services, resources, public policy—within self-governing bodies that practice shared decision-making, shared resources, shared accountability, and shared outcomes for the children living and learning in the neighborhood.
Promise Neighborhoods of the Lehigh Valley is a catalyst for viewing each community through the lens of its unique assets, visioning a better future, and measuring by how well each asset is coordinated around clear results for children.
Striving to have these best practices become common practice, Promise Neighborhoods are quickly becoming the region’s premier vehicle for achieving neighborhood transformation, one child at a time.
