Our Mission

The Huntsville Network for Urban School Renewal, Inc. (HNUSR) is a community development corporation seeking to support and revitalize communities particularly in north Huntsville through not only the improvement of educational outcomes for children, youth and adults in those communities but by intentionally leveraging those improved outcomes to engage in community and economic development throughout the City of Huntsville as part of an Opportunity Zone. 

We seek to do this by engaging in academic innovation using the Comer School Development Program and CDF Freedom Schools® models in a school called Harambee Academy; providing workforce development services; engaging in community food leadership; and participating in a wide range of other activities that promote the general well-being and health of north Huntsville and surrounding communities.

We believe to close academic, economic and opportunity gaps prevalent in the city, achieving equity requires a greater commitment of resources and offerings of diverse services in disenfranchised communities than in affluent communities. 

 We believe the words of the late Dr. Elijah Benjamin Mays ring true: “He who starts behind in the great race of life must forever remain behind or run faster than the man in front.” We believe that to run faster, those who are behind must be provided extra support.
