Lebron James to Build Houses for His ‘I Promise School’ Families


Lebron James opened his I Promise School in Akron, Ohio in 2018. His goal was to help at-risk children have a safe learning environment.


James is now going one step further by creating homes for the families of his students. The objective of the school was to initially give kids an education. In recent interviews, James states, “It is impossible to help them learn if they are struggling to survive… If you go home and it’s not stable, you can resort back to the bad habits you might have had.”

The homes are set to be completed by July 2020.
