Where We Work
Safe Streets currently operates sites in ten communities:
- Cherry Hill
- Franklin Square
- McElderry Park
- Park Heights
Each community site employs a team of Violence Interrupters, a Violence Prevention Coordinator, a Site Supervisor, and a Site Director. In each neighborhood where Safe Streets works, the site builds relationships with key individuals in the community, mediates conflicts, hosts shooting responses, organizes community-building events and connects residents to resources.

Hospital Responder Program
Safe Streets employs hospital responders at the following hospitals:
- Johns Hopkins Hospital
- MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital
- MedStar Harbor Hospital
- MedStar Union Memorial Hospital
- Sinai Hospital
Hospital responders serve patients who are admitted to the emergency department for injuries caused by violence. Hospital responders conduct intakes and risk assessments with patients and create individualized plans to prevent further injury or retaliation. Hospital responders also provide service referrals to ensure comprehensive support for patients and collaborate with Safe Streets site staff to mediate conflicts as needed.
School-Based Violence Prevention Program
Safe Streets also collaborates with the Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts, Frederick Douglass High School, and Renaissance Academy to address risk and protective factors related to violence among students, and offer other necessary support towards preventing school-based violence.
