Seeds of Promise is a 501c3 non-profit organization, which is a dba of Community Development Impact Ministration, Inc. Seeds has emerged as a solution to neighborhood community issues surrounding multi-generational dependency that has continuously gone unaddressed. The existing “top-down” strategies have deepened recipient’s reliance on resources to date, rather than providing opportunities for them to become self-sustaining. Our mission is to equip and empower community residents to govern and direct continuously improving, self-sustaining personal and neighborhood prosperity. Seeds of Promise defines neighborhood prosperity as a community that meets the following impact dimensions: 1) Youth are succeeding in learning and life; 2) Families are functioning effectively; 3) Adults are generating a livable wage income; 4) Residents are committed to a wellness lifestyle; 5) Neighborhood is safe to live, work and play.
