The 'I Promise Village' is intended to provide safety and security to students so they could focus on studies.
LeBron James' 'I Promise Schools' were opened to support students under difficult circumstances. This initiative showed great results as a few studies showed the students from this school performing extremely well on their test results. The idea was to provide them with a safe environment where they can learn and grow as self-sufficient citizens.
Adding to that legacy, LeBron has initiated 'I Promise Village' which is an apartment complex meant for families and students who are vulnerable to find a safe place to stay. The LeBron James Family Foundation would partner with Graduate Hotels to provide these homes at the Akron school.
The LeBron James Family Foundation's official Twitter handle tweeted: "Whether it be homelessness, domestic violence, or other unforeseen circumstances… The Village is intended to provide shelter, safety and support so that students are still able to attend school as the Foundation assists the family with a long-term plan for their future success."
This is about more than just getting kids to school. This is about keeping them alive. This is a place that will allow our families time & opportunities to grow while not worrying if they’ll have a roof over their head.— I PROMISE School (@IPROMISESchool) November 4, 2019

LeBron also took to Twitter and wrote: "Proud of this!!!!! There's always more to be done when it comes to giving my kids an opportunity to be successful in life. Every barrier we remove can possibly change their family’s life and we're never going to stop!!"
