What is Sunset Park Promise Neighborhood and Early Learning Network

Sunset Park Promise Neighborhood (SPPN) is a partnership of community residents, organizations and schools in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn New York.  The SPPN community action plan centers on joining existing resources and assets in the community and channeling them into neighborhood schools to reach the greatest number of families and affect significant, long-term change in children’s lives.  The programs and services of this community partnership create a cradle to career pathway of support and opportunity for children.

SPPN was created in the fall of 2010, one of the original 21 Promise Neighborhoods across the country.
