Southeast Raleigh Promise
Southeast Raleigh Promise will lead revitalization efforts by engaging community members, building partnerships, securing funding, and ensuring significant investments in 5 key areas: Education, Affordable Housing, Health & Wellness, Economic Opportunity and Leadership Development. Together they can dismantle the system and environment that perpetuated a cycle of intergenerational poverty and replace it with a system that allows for all people to thrive.
Area of Impact
Southeast Raleigh Promise is focused on the neighborhoods surrounding the Rock Quarry Road Corridor (RQRC). With a two-generation approach, we serve children, families, and the Southeast Raleigh community at large. Currently, there are approximately 29,000 residents, 8,000 of which are children under the age of 18 living in the RQRC, and 54% of these children live in poverty. We work to transform our neighborhood to support healthy families who raise healthy children, who then grow into healthy young adults.
