LeBron James Expands “I PROMISE” School In Efforts to provide for housing for at-risk families in need!
The LeBron James Family Foundation and Graduate Hotels declared the “I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels,” which will help understudies whose families are managing obstacles like vagrancy, abusive behavior at home and extra hazardous leaving courses of action.
Initially, our work was focused on helping these kids earn an education,” James said in a statement. “But we’ve found that it is impossible to help them learn if they are struggling to survive — if they are hungry, if they have no heat in the freezing winter if they live in fear for their safety. We want this place to be their home where they feel safe, supported, and loved, knowing we are right there with them every step of the way as they get back on their feet.”
LeBron James and his “I PROMISE” school will currently give change lodging to understudies and their families who are needing a solid living condition.
As per ESPN, the new town will be in a notable Akron condo building, which will be redesigned and accessible for living within July 2020.
“Being able to offer this safe haven for our families is transformational in every sense of the word,” said Michele Campbell, the LeBron James Family Foundation executive director. “This is about more than just getting kids to school. This is about keeping them alive. We’re seeing families struggling every day with very real and often times unexpected issues that turn their worlds upside down. This will allow the family time and opportunities to grow while not worrying if they’ll have a roof over their head.”
“The ‘I Promise Village by Graduate Hotels’ will be a monumental next step for us and LeBron and his Foundation’s commitment to the future of the students and their families,” Graduate Hotels founder and CEO Ben Weprin said. “It’s humbling to see the change they are affecting on a daily basis and we’re honored to be a part of the journey.”
