UrbanPromise Charlotte’s first AfterSchool Program and Summer Camp is rooted in the South Blvd. corridor in southwest Charlotte. According to a UNCC study, southwest Charlotte is the second largest Latino residential district in Mecklenburg County, yet sizable portions of this district have “no access” to the services that have been identified as important to successful integration and acculturation for the Latino community.
UrbanPromise is blessed to partner with the South Blvd. Community Partners in our work. The South Blvd. Community Partners is a collaborative network of complimentary partners designed to serve, develop and disciple the community. Inspired by our faith, the South Blvd. Community Partners feel compelled to respond to the families and under resourced neighborhoods along the South Blvd corridor.
South Blvd. Community Partners was formed in response to the CMS Faith Summit 2.0 held in April 2013 at Temple Bethel. Dr. Heath Morrison challenged the faith community to lead the way in developing creative solutions in response to the non-instructional needs of CMS students and their families.
