Gift Ideas for Safe Streets (Sandtown and Brooklyn sites)
Safe Streets is a violence prevention program in Baltimore, MD, two of whole locations are operated in the Sandtown-Winchester and Brooklyn-Curtis Bay neighborhoods.
Contact Sunnye Fredia, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about donating.
Safe Streets uses the Cure Violence scientifically based health model and approaches violence like a disease, using the same health strategies deployed to fight infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, cholera and AIDS. We train carefully selected members of the community — trusted insiders — to anticipate where violence may occur and intervene before it erupts. And we engage the entire community in an effort to change behavior and recognize that violence is unacceptable as a method of conflict resolution.
An evidence-based violence prevention model underpins the program, which operates in four Baltimore communities. Each are a joint venture of the Baltimore City Department of Health and a community organization. The Safe Streets Sandtown Winchester and Brooklyn locations are operated by Catholic Charities of Baltimore.
Aside from your continued support and advocacy, one of the main ways community members and establishments can support our work is through practical material donations, ranging from grocery store gift cards to kids’ bicycles. These would enhance our abilities in two areas:
• Providing resources for basic needs for residents.
• Broaden our community engagement and education about violence prevention by providing incentives for youth to participate and serve their community.
Our goal is not just to interrupt violent encounters but to dissipate them before they start. Additional resources can help us change attitudes and provide opportunities to make this reality possible.
