East Austin Neighborhood Support & Transformation – 2006

February 12, 2010 at 3:37 pm Leave a comment

Southwest Key Programs (SWK) moved its national headquarters into the heart of Austin’s East side for a reason.  We pride ourselves on being a part of the community we serve, and our community center acts as a host for many neighborhood events. We provide a much-needed middle school, job training, leadership development, a Boys & Girls Club, arts and cultural activities, family support programs and much more.

To further help the families and accelerate the neighborhoods transformation, we launched our East Austin Children’s Promise to ensure that for all East Austin children, the best that Austin has to offer will also be available to them. This model is based upon the Harlem Children’s Zone, and all starts from an anchor organization and community center providing and coordinating services for local children and their families.

Looking back through our archives, I came across this local TV news coverage from four years ago in 2006, that outlines our neighborhood transformational approach and the trust and support we enjoy from the community we serve.
