10:50 pm
people want their families to come to san francisco. that's the biggest investment. in order to do that you've got to have schools and a community partnerships and the rest of city government engaged. that's why we have over 1 hundred people engaged in this vision for our groups. we have reenvisioned how we can be more innovative & welcoming. so i want to take the opportunity to thank the secretary and thank president obama for gufz this up to this point for reenforcing the president's view we're about creating lards of opportunity for the community. i can't stress how important that is.
10:51 pm

10:53 pm
morning something that one of my former colleagues used to say hillary clinton wrote a book to tanks a village to raise a child and it takes a village to revisit liza village >> a wonderful wonderful leader mayor lee you're an inspiration. we want all your visions for the city to come true. i continue to have absolute commitment to see what you want to have happen in san francisco. it council be more beautifully presented to us. this is a reactor e remarkable
10:54 pm
neighborhood. and we're inspired by louis from your team that's the work that's been done and the work in valuing less than gardens it beautiful oar i came from the middle school and saw one of the lottery performing schools in the city and have a long time the dramatic leap that san francisco has had here. there's no single silver bullet to solve all the problems but it's about bringing together the credible web of partnerships i've seen today. but everyone that's worked has a single goal in mind that they share with president obama. the mayor said the president's been traveling around the country talking about the most
10:55 pm
important challenges facing our country how are we going to continue no matter who you are we can create playgrounds of opportunity into the middle class but you, you came to this neighborhood a decade ago at the housing project before is a child who no matter how hard they worked in school or no matter he or she parents do to get ahead you might see a child who's life span was determined by the zip code they grew up in and that's wrong. we can't allow children's futures to be destroyed because we've failed to create a
10:56 pm
neighborhood that nufrnz them. i've come here today not only to segregate you on your success but to take the example we're seeing in the midgets district to places all around this country. and really looking at it and i've seen here in valuing less than gardens is a community that came together with over $25 million from hud to start a hope 6 development. and the result of that it the absolutely beautiful investment. i wish you could have seen the pictures that i saw what it looked like before. with an 11-year-old and a fourteen-year-old myself any
10:57 pm
parent would feel lucky to raise their child here. the next he step is when president obama came in he helped to get fund to schools that were struggling the most and based on a model the harlem children zone in new york city was the area we wanted to create an effort we called choice neighborhoods that wanted to take the hope 6 example and take it to the next level. and those two efforts the promised neighborhood and choice neighborhoods are ben this community. over 5 years there was a huge investment to the schools in this neighborhood. i talked to kids this morning and they love their teachers and love to learn and be in sullivan
10:58 pm
school but when their parents can't get them for a couple of hours after school it's a expensive after school programs that allow them to continue learning after the school day end. they're dealing with the violence around them they can get counseling in school. all of the pieces have come together to make sure that no child's future is determined just by their zip code. and finally the last pie we at hud awarded $30 million to help create the next generation. as the mayor said we can't build poverty housing or housing that
10:59 pm
concentrates the lottery neighborhoods without groceries or hope and instead where a we need to do is take this hope model and take it to the next level. we've done with that choice neighborhood. and alice griffin i get we'll see you over the next few years a remarkable vision. and you'll see this around the country this is not just something we should do. there are some say we can't afford to do that and i say we can't afford not to do this. every time we do this $22 million is returned to taxpayers. why? because kids grew up and
11:00 pm
they can contribute to society crime goes down and school performs get better before they actually save money in the long run for taxpayers. so alice will be the next one >> we've been so inspired by examples like we've seen here, the president of the state of the union addressed announced we would be taking all the work choices neighborhoods to the next level throughout promise zones effort. not only are we going to bring housing and the education pieces bus the criminal justice efforts and health and humanvi
