The Los Angeles (LA) Promise Neighborhood includes two separate communities, Pacoima and Hollywood, which are about 17 miles from each other. The lead agency drew the boundaries
for one of the two communities based, in part, on the location of existing partnerships on which it could draw. They chose to expand their service model to a second community with few
nonprofits, despite the need for services.
