Stability at home is the greatest out-of-school factor in the development and success of students. Children who move often or live in stressful environments have difficulties staying focused and disciplined in school, or even arriving at school each day. Allentown Promise Neighborhood is a place where children and families will want to live, have access to high quality and affordable housing, and travel along safe pathways to and from school.
Families and communities want their children to succeed in school and life. Schools, however, cannot do it all. Allentown Promise Neighborhood is a place where children have greater access to in-school and out-of-school support and enrichment opportunities, and families are empowered with the resources necessary to support their students and ensure their success.
