Sisters of Charity Foundation and Central Promise Host Community Conversations

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

The Central Promise Neighborhood effort is an exciting community collaboration dedicated to promoting the educational success of children in Central.

Over the next several weeks, the Sisters of Charity Foundation will host, on behalf of the Central Promise Neighborhood, a series of Community Conversations. The purpose of these meetings is to hear from you – the community as they continue to build upon the vision of Promise, identify new resources and opportunities to support Promise and further inform the development of the 2012 application to the Department of Education to fund the effort. Each community conversation will have a unique focus and be hosted throughout the Central neighborhood.
