EDUCATION IS THE KEY
An education-minded community is more likely to experience decreased crime, improved health, more family stability and increased civic involvement. Participating in this program will demonstrate a commitment to education that will give children a better chance at having financially stable lives as adults.

BE A PART OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD
By joining in the revitalization of La Crosse neighborhoods, families will experience a more close-knit community and the convenience of living close to historic downtown La Crosse, with many amenities just a walk or bike ride away.

The La Crosse Promise Neighborhood Program currently focuses on the area bordered by South Avenue, West Avenue and Main Street, just south of downtown La Crosse, WI.
