Harrisburg Promise Announcement

Good evening!

We are pleased to announce that HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College; the City of Harrisburg; and the Harrisburg Housing Authority have developed a partnership – the Harrisburg Promise.

The Harrisburg Promise will create a pathway to postsecondary education for youth in Harrisburg, specifically in these areas: Hall Manor, Hillside Village, Hoverter Homes, MW Smith Homes and William Howard Day Homes. The program will support students from seventh grade through graduation from HACC, with early intervention that will reduce barriers to postsecondary education and inspire college aspirations.

In September, we will celebrate this partnership with a news conference and picnic. During these events, you will have an opportunity to meet some of the Harrisburg Promise students and their parents, the president of HACC, the mayor of the City of Harrisburg and the president and CEO of the Harrisburg Housing Authority.
