It’s been 55 days since our last shooting.
What We Do:
We mediate conflicts.
We partner with other community groups, organizations, and residents to promote non-violence.
We link to GED and job-training programs, professional counseling, housing, and health and family services.
Who We Help:
Homicide is one of the greatest risk factors for teenagers and young adults, ages 14-25.
How well are we doing?
In 2017, Safe Streets Baltimore conducted over 280 conflict mediations (interruptions) that likely would have resulted in gunshot violence.
Community events sponsored by Safe Streets attempt to send strong and consistent messages that violence is not acceptable to influence social norms.
Shootings and other violent crimes occur at “hotspots,” or on certain city blocks, there are 6 hotspots in Cherry Hill:
- The One Way
- Denham Circle
- Coppin Court
- Down the Hill
- Up the Hill
- Shopping Center
