Bringing New Hope to Southeast Raleigh

The Southeast Raleigh Promise Project believes that if we focus our collective resources and creativity in 5 key areas; Education, Quality Affordable Housing, Health & Wellness, Economic Opportunity, and Leadership Development, we can improve outcomes for the children and families of Southeast Raleigh today, and for generations to come.

A Bright New Corner of the Triangle

Southeast Raleigh is rich in culture, diversity, and promise. There’s no part of the city with more potential to grow and add vitality to our region than Southeast Raleigh. A positive and sustainable impact is only possible if everyone works together in a way much different than we have in the past.

A Community Investment in the a New Future

We envision a site, along the Rock Quarry Road corridor, that has tangible, physical resources including a state-of-the-art YMCA with quality wellness facilities, a K-5 school, safe and affordable housing for families, access to healthy food, and accessible spaces for recreation and play. While it takes a significant investment to build these physical resources, it takes an even greater investment to ensure that residents of Southeast Raleigh have an authentic and active role in shaping the way these resources serve the community. We are committed to that investment.
