Village of Promise is a non profit organization founded by Bobby Bradley, founder of Computer Systems Technology, Inc. and Gloria Batts. community activist. Together, they shared a vision, inspired by the work of Geoffrey Canada, CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone, to eradicate generational poverty one neighborhood at a time.

The first target neighborhood is bounded by Sparkman Avenue, Holmes Avenue, Pulaski Pike and Oakwood Avenue which includes University Place Elementary School, Montview Elementary School, Westlawn Middle School, and Butler High School. We will provide wrap around services from cradle to college with our collaborative partners. Tutoring, mentoring and early childhood education are just a few examples of the transformative programs we are engaged in.
