What We Do
Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI's) mission is to promote a collaborative community centered on quality housing, education, health and wellness, and opportunity. Our vision is to end intergenerational poverty through a holistic community revitalization effort.
RWCI opened a Pre-K through 8th grade school, Renaissance West STEAM Academy, in 2017 and jointly governs the school with Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system. The Howard Levine Child Development Center is the beginning of our cradle to career education pipeline and is a 5 star high quality facility that strives to have all children ready to enter kindergarten, while also having a holistic approach with their families. Through a plan guided by the residents needs and vision for their neighborhood, RWCI is a consistent support system in all areas of their lives.
