Community Sites

Safe Streets currently operates sites in ten communities: 

  • Belair-Edison
  • Belvedere
  • Brooklyn
  • Cherry Hill
  • Franklin Square
  • McElderry Park
  • Park Heights
  • Penn-North
  • Sandtown-Winchester
  • Woodbourne-McCabe

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

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

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.
