In 1987 Mrs. Oral Lee Brown adopted the entire first grade class from Brookfield Elementary School in Oakland, CA a school located in one of the most poverty-stricken and violence-plagued areas of Oakland, CA. Most of these children are disadvantaged, low-income, at-risk youth. She was motivated by the fact that these children faced tremendous challenges each day just to survive through their childhood and young adult years. Her promise was to support them in any way essential to gain a quality education. She personally set aside $10,000.00 of her own money and continues to contribute that amount, or more, annually. In addition, through the Foundation, we provide a broad range of personal and emotional support services as help for these students to overcome the many hurdles in their path. The Foundation continues working tirelessly to prepare, support, and fund East Oakland’s students to finish high school, promising and delivering them a college education and a pathway to success. Working in partnership with the community, we provide afterschool programming, Saturday school, extensive mentoring, and college tuition. 32 years later the Promise continues.
