Every child deserves a promise neighborhood; a place where they are wrapped in the education, health and social support they need, from cradle to career, to reach their full potential. The West Side Promise Neighborhood (WSPN) network exists to create that envelope of care and support.
Our vision is to make Buffalo’s West Side a vibrant, safe, healthy and inclusive neighborhood by 2025. We envision a community where every family is strong, every child is healthy and every youth succeeds in school and achieves lifelong success.
The West Side Promise Neighborhood (WSPN) extends from Hertel Avenue (north) to City Hall (south) and Niagara Street (west) to Richmond Avenue (east). We exist to serve the citizens of this community, young and old, established and new to our region or country.
We are a diverse group of partners, public and private, who share a common vision and commitment to improving the lives of children and their families living on Buffalo’s West Side. We are schools, medical and financial institutions, community service agencies, local businesses, philanthropists and activists.
