Tri-Star Leadership successfully coordinated grant funding for Opa-Locka Community Development with the Children’s Trust in the amount of $750,000.00 over three years for placed based partnerships. Keeping our Promise: Place-Based Partnerships for At-Risk Populations is an initiative being led by the Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation that is designed to improve outcomes for children and provide support for their families, specifically, for children enrolled at Golden Glades, Nathan B. Young, and Dr. Robert Ingram Elementary School. This effectiveness of the program and partnership is to be measured by improved student attendance, behavior, and decreases in student maltreatment. It will also be measured by an increase in the number of children and families linked to community partners that provide services and supports that improve their overall quality of life.
Successfully coordinated partnership between the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation, and the City of Opa-Locka for a collaborative to support revitalization and improvements around targeted elementary schools in the area. The collaborative will involve the beautification of public spaces, landscaping, improvements to major traveling corridors, and educational enhancements to the school’s curricula tied to the project. It will also yield increased funding opportunities to support further expansions via federal, state, local, and private sources.
