A Growing Community
The New Town Success Zone (NTSZ) was founded in February of 2008 and has a stated mission “to provide a place-based continuum of services from prenatal and well-baby care to college or post-secondary training for children and their families living in the neighborhood.” The NTSZ uses the Two-Generation Approach to offer a continuum of care for both children and their caregivers to strengthen and empower families to work towards achieving positive outcomes and higher education for their children.
To achieve NTSZ’s mission, the following goals as reflected in the program plan:
Education Goal: To improve the continuation of services from birth through high school graduation, postsecondary education, or career/vocational training completion of youth that reside in the neighborhood designated as the New Town Success Zone (NTSZ) in Jacksonville, FL.
Social Wellbeing Goal: Improve the social wellbeing of children and youth in NTSZ by ensuring access to health care, food security, quality affordable housing, and safety.
Community Capacity & Sustainability Goal: Empower NTSZ residents to sustain and support NTSZ goals, initiatives, and activities.
