McElderry Park Revitalization
The Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ) is pleased to announce the creation of the McElderry Park Revitalization Coalition. This coalition was established to assist and advise MOCJ with the disbursement of federal funds awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice FY2012 for the McElderry Park neighborhood.
These funds are to be used to identify the drivers of crime within the McElderry Park community. Simply put, the program is designed to find the causes of crime within McElderry Park. Once these drivers or causes of crime are identified, the coalition can then proceed to unearthing evidence-based programs which can address the issues discovered.
This Project Seeks to:
- Organize and Mobilize the McElderry Park community (Coalition Building)
- Identify the drivers of crime (Data Collecting)
- Implement evidence-based programs (Addressing the Issues)
The McElderry Park Coalition continues to grow each day. Currently, the MPRC has developed relationships with the following organizations and stakeholders within McElderry Park:
- Southeastern Police District
- Johns Hopkins Center for Adolescent Health
- Banner Neighborhoods
- The McElderry Park Community Association
- Charm City Clinic
- Historic East Baltimore Community Action Coalition
- Safe Streets East
- Amazing Grace Lutheran Church
- Environmental Justice Partnership
- Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning
- Johns Hopkins Office of Community Services Government and Community Affairs
And many more…
If your organization would like to be part of the MPRC project, meetings are held the last Wednesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Location: McElderry Park Resource Center - 611 North Montford Ave.
