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.

Interesting Info

RWCI serves 1300 residents in the Renaissance and Little Rock neighborhoods with 87% who are single females under the age of 35 with children.
RWCI is mentioned in the Opportunity Task Force report as a place-based initiative that works and needs to be replicated in Charlotte.
RWCI jointly governs Renaissance West STEAM Academy (pre-K to 5th) and is opening the Howard Levine Child Development Center (ages 0 to 5).
