The Indianola Promise Community (IPC) is a community-led initiative unique to the Delta, which offers programs that touch the lives of people in Indianola by improving access to quality healthcare, by providing programs for early childhood development and literacy, and addressing the social needs of children and adolescents as well as their families. The goal of IPC is to build a continuum of programs that will blanket Indianola with programs that cover significant unmet needs of children from prenatal care to college preparation, focusing specifically on health care, adult literacy, early childhood development, parenting, after school tutoring, healthy lifestyles, and social needs for children and teens.
