The U.S. Department of Education has awarding $30 million over 5 years to Promise Heights as one of their most recent Promise Neighborhood implementation awards recipients. In a press release from The University of Maryland Baltimore*, “[t]his funding [will provide] access to educational and enrichment opportunities that underfunded and under-resourced schools like the ones in Upton/Druid Heights so desperately need,” said Promoise Heights Executive Director Bronwyn Mayden, MSW.

“When we talk about the achievement gap for children of color, we should be more focused on the lack of equity which exists for schools in high-poverty neighborhoods.” We are excited for what the future will bring and cannot wait to begin the work. Thank you for your support—we would not be able to do this work without you.
