Created in partnership with The LeBron James Family Foundation, the I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels serves as transitional housing for I PROMISE families in need of safe and stable housing.
With its welcoming, family-first environment, the completely renovated Village is a stepping stone for I PROMISE parents, students and siblings, providing time and resources to help them reach their next sustainable, successful chapter.
We’re incredibly grateful to the friends and partners who made this project possible through their generous contributions. With their help, the I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels will serve as a warm and inviting gathering place for the community for many years to come.

Why I PROMISE
“Community and education are at the core of what we do,” says our founder and CEO Ben Weprin. “This project is a monumental next step for us and LeBron and his Foundation’s commitment to the future of the students and their families.”
How We’ve Helped
Graduate renovated a historic apartment building, thoughtfully redesigning the space for I PROMISE families. After completion, the entire building was donated to the organization, so it can continue supporting at-risk elementary students for years to come.
Thank you to our design partners for helping us bring the I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels to life.
