Working with the Community
Our Outreach Workers will work closely with area residents, businesses, and community-based organizations in three targeted neighborhoods: Lincoln Courts, Springhill, and Wheatley Courts.
The team will build sufficient trust with “high-risk individuals” and influence the way these young people think and act while redirecting them to positive pursuits and other alternatives to violence.
Identify & Detect
Outreach Workers will identify and detect
- potential shooting events,
- individuals and groups at highest risk of involvement in a shooting or killing.
Once identified, they will
- intervene in crises and
- mediate conflicts between individuals and/or groups and
- foster behavior change by providing information and skills and connecting clients to social services.
Stand Up S.A. will provide the community with information and training on specific strategies to bring about behavior change.
