The West Side Promise Neighborhood Initiative is a diverse group of community members that are committed to improving the lives of children and their families living on Buffalo’s West Side. We work together and support one another while implementing a continuum of supports including early learning through high school graduation, family and community supports, and college-and career-readiness creating a brighter future for the neighborhood.
By 2025, Buffalo’s West Side will be a vibrant, diverse, safe, healthy, and inclusive neighborhood where every family is strong, every child is healthy, and every youth succeeds in school and achieves life-long success. To this end, we envision a cradle-through-college-to-career network composed of residents, community partners, and schools that work together to:
Follow a community action plan composed of:
A common agenda
A shared measurement system
A continuum of mutually reinforcing activities
Create and maintain a continuous communication system accessible to all stakeholders
Be respectful of neighborhood needs, cultural diversity, and stakeholder roles
Come together and respectfully listen to children, families, and each other to identify strengths and assets upon which effective solutions can continue to be built and unmet needs of the community are addressed
WSPN Leadership Applications will be avaialbe in Spring 2021.
