Mission Statement

All children deserve to grow up in communities that are healthy, vibrant, and filled with opportunity. Our purpose, and our promise, is to make this a reality for every child who lives within the Charleston Promise Neighborhood.

Description

Our Vision: The Neighborhood will be socially and economically indistinguishable from the rest of Charleston County within a generation.

Our Mission: Transform our Neighborhood, our lives, and the future for our children.

Our Strategy: Leverage the lessons learned and successes of other community revitalization efforts in building a continuum of cost effective solutions, at scale, addressing opportunities in six Strands of Focus (education, parenting, housing, healthcare, employment and community) across all age groups from pre-natal to college.

Overarching Goal: Increase the number and percentage of children graduating from college; in the near term, improve the high school graduation rate.

Keys to Success: A continuum of cost effective solutions at scale, continuous evaluation of participant, solution and organization performance versus "best in class" performance, a longitudinal database that underpins the above, and a "whatever it takes" attitude to achieve our goals.
