Safe Streets East
Safe Streets is a public health campaign to reduce shooting and homicides in several East Baltimore communities, where homicide is one of the greatest risk factors for teenagers and young adults, ages 14-25. The core strategy of Safe Streets is to engage community stakeholders in planning and carrying out community activities, public responses to shootings and homicides, and mobilization of residents to take the streets back from criminals and gangs. Living Classrooms, the Baltimore City Health Department, and East Baltimore service organizations and religious communities have created a coalition to put this organized strategy into action.
In addition, Safe Streets employs Outreach Workers to go into the community and recruit troubled or adjudicated youth to be a part of the program. Outreach Workers provide appropriate connections and referrals to clients including but not limited to GED and job-training programs, professional counseling (individual and family), transitional housing, and health and family services. Some of the Outreach Workers are ex-offenders, and are able to establish rapport with these high risk individuals, provide support services, and connect high risk clients to positive alternatives.
