IPP Mission Neighborhood Promise

Investigator: Alicia Lieberman, PhD

Location(s): United States


The Mission Promise Neighborhood (MPN) is a five year neighborhood initiative funded by theU.S. Department of Education’s Office of Innovation and Improvement. MPN will bring together successful local nonprofits and public and private partners to work with kids and families to empower the community, break cycles of poverty, and ensure every child can reach their full potential, from cradle to college to career.

The “Promise Neighborhoods” model builds on successful efforts of the Harlem Children’s Zone, which provides children and families with high-quality, coordinated educational, health, social, and community supports from cradle to college to career. MPN will provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services so that children and families in San Francisco’s Mission District prosper in a safe, culturally relevant and economically prosperous community.
