Neighborhood Safety

Empowered communities need inclusive neighborhoods that provide safety and connectedness.

  • Park Revitalization and Community Improvements
  • Youth Violence Prevention
  • Healing and Trauma-informed Initiatives

Our programs include:

  • Park Makeovers
  • Sacramento Minority Youth Violence Prevention Collective
  • SHOP
  • Walk With Friends
  • Healthy Food Access
