What is the mission of your organization?

Springfield Promise Neighborhood (SPN) ensures the academic and social success of youth living in the under-resourced neighborhoods of the south side of Springfield, Ohio. We work with residents and community partners in three focus areas: increasing community participation in areas of safety, housing & youth development; creating sustainable extended learning opportunities for youth that serve their academic, social, & enrichment needs; and developing the local resources that lead to lasting social change.

Which social causes (up to 3 choices) does your agency address through its programming? *

  • (3) Children
  • (5) Education
  • (11) Poverty

Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?

While we are primarily focused on the success of children in low-income neighborhoods, we understand that schools and communities work together and influence each other in strong ways. We seek to try to make that connection stronger for the betterment of a child's life.
