The Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood has promoted Richaun Bunton to managing director and Dawn Glasco to manager of engagement and social innovation. The promotions better reflect the ongoing work in the community and the role of the Central Promise Team. Promise is a collective impact movement that helps to convene partners, create shared goals and implement collaborative initiatives in Cleveland's Central neighborhood. The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is the lead partner of the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood.
As managing director, Bunton maintains Promise Neighborhood leadership across key partners (e.g. Starting Point, Family Connections, College Now) to develop shared goals, processes, measurement, activities and more in pursuit of collaboratively identified outcomes for Central neighborhood families and children.
In her five years with the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood, Bunton has formed deep connections with partners in areas of education (early childhood, K-8 and high school), behavioral health, trauma-informed healing and community engagement. These relationships inform her leadership of related Promise Neighborhood initiatives, including early childhood education capacity, student transitions, post-secondary pathways and the Family Partners initiative.
A former Promise Ambassador who has been a staff member for eight years, Glasco has been the eyes and ears of the Promise Neighborhood among residents in the community. She will lead the Promise Ambassador program, which she has co-led over the last several years. Glasco is integral in leading and supporting key neighborhood activities and programs and finding new and innovative ways to engage communities impacted by health, racial and socio-economic inequities.
