The Albina-Rockwood Promise Neighborhood Initiative (ARPNI) is a partnership of community-based organizations, residents, local schools, colleges and local and federal government agencies. We work together to deliver resources, serve communities, and empower families.From the first days of learning to post-high school plans, we support students and families through culturally specific and culturally responsive services. We see a future where every child excels and every family thrives.

Self Enhancement, Inc., Albina Head Start, Immigrant Refugee Community Organization, Latino Network, Metropolitan Family Services, Native American Youth Association, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, Portland Public Schools and Reynolds School District are implementing the Albina Rockwood Promise Neighborhood Initiative (ARPNI).

ARPNI is a U.S. Department of Education grant to support neighborhoods of opportunity by providing a continuum of school readiness, academic services and family and community support to children from early childhood through college—and beyond. A highly competitive grant, Portland is just one of 23 communities since 2010 to receive this honor. United Way is honored to help support the work of these incredible nonprofit organizations by providing outreach and research services. Click here to learn more about ARPNI.
