Plain Dealer introduces series featuring Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood

A ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is committed to reducing disparities in health and education in the Central Neighborhood near downtown Cleveland. Residents of this community, like so many in our region, experience poor outcomes in education and health, which make it much harder for residents to move out of poverty. The foundation is working on developing a "Promise Neighborhood" in Central that works to improve children's success in school and the community in general. This work has been supported and noticed by many, including The Plain Dealer, which has published the first story in an occasional series about the ongoing effort to create the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood.
