2024 San Antonio Promise Zone Community Engagement VISTA
The goal of this effort is to ensure that everyone has equal access to opportunity, and that the place you are born does not determine your destiny. The Eastside Promise Zone serves the community through its focus on the following goals: job creation and training; increased economic activity; improve educational opportunities and increase family stability; leverage private investment; reduce serious and violent crime; reduce poverty; and increase the supply of affordable housing; and promote health and wellness. VISTA will conduct activities to further community participation and development in the 22 sq. mile Promise Zone and the surrounding East San Antonio Community.
