Promise Partners-- Pottawattamie County's Alliance for Youth is an umbrella organization that brings people and communities together to advance child safety, family stability, and supportive relationships. We build connections and lead collaboration between local nonprofits, government, schools, and social service agencies who share our mission, empowering a caring community that promises the well-being of every child.
Science also explains that relationships are the main ingredient that helps us overcome tough times. Relationships have the power to shape our brains. Relationships help us learn better, work better, parent better. When we experience tough times, they help us heal. With each connection, we develop a healthier, stronger community. When communities work together to build relationships, resilience increases while rates of childhood trauma and health problems decrease.
That is why Promise Partners lets everyone know that fostering connections with the children, families and adults in our lives matter to developing healthy brains, supportive relationships and strong communities.
