Promise Heights

The Promise Heights initiative was established in 2009 by the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) School of Social Work to improve educational outcomes for youth and ensure families are healthy and successful in the surrounding neighborhoods of West Baltimore. The Promise Heights (PH) team here at MMLCS will primarily focus on enhancing the school’s climate and culture, fostering relationships with community-based organizations, and supporting scholars and families. Together, we will create an environment where students and families feel welcome, will thrive within an educational space, and have access to exciting and enriching opportunities.
