Since our inception in 1997 we have focused on developing one-to-one mentoring relationships throughout the entire greater Phoenix area. In 2010, with a growing waiting list of youth, an increased need in the community and finite resources, we decided to develop a new strategic approach to mentoring which we call the Promise Neighborhood.
Promise Neighborhoods bring together youth, families, mentors, volunteers, churches, local businesses and other partners in strategically identified communities with the purpose of creating long-term solutions to the challenges facing our youth.
Over the last two years of implementing the Promise Neighborhood concept, and with the grace of God, we’ve seen the following successes:
- Increased number of youth served by 53%
- Created 13 new church partnerships
- Attracted over 500 volunteers
- Increased program funding by 56%
