Trust Matters: South Ward Promise Neighborhood


Newark Trust for Education is proud to support the launch of the South Ward Promise Neighborhood. We’re bringing even more programs and resources from around the city to the South Ward to support our kids. Through a partnership led by the South Ward Children’s Alliance, we were awarded a landmark $30 million Promise Neighborhood grant earlier this year! Since then we’ve been hard at work – with partners from around the city – thinking through additional ways we can continue to invest in our families through the South Ward Promise Neighborhood. We're excited to share that we’re ready to launch.

Together, we are working toward a South Ward where each and every child has an unimpeded path to unlocking their limitless potential.
