PEER SUPPORT SERVICES
Peer Support is provided with the goal to achieve and maintain a safe and healthy environment for individuals that are lacking a strong support system within urban communities.
Violence Intervention is about keeping open and active communication with residents and community leaders about the lack of safety in communities that trigger "fight or flight" responses.
Resource Placement supports and strengthens the viability of the community by providing underserved groups with sustainable opportunities such as employment, business start-up services, or gaining access to our exclusive network.
