Safe Streets Baltimore Brooklyn-Curtis Bay

Our Purpose

Safe Streets is based on the premise that violence is a disease that can be prevented using disease-control methods.

Violence interrupters connect with high-risk individuals to defuse potentially violent situations, and link community youth with services, working within targeted neighborhoods with historically high levels of gun violence. By linking individuals and their families with educational opportunities, employment training and assistance, mental health services, substance abuse treatment and other crucial services, Safe Streets helps to provide young people with alternatives to a life of crime and violence.

Who We Serve

Safe Streets is an evidence-based violence prevention and interruption program that works to reduce shootings and homicides in high violence areas, operated by Catholic Charities in collaboration with the Baltimore City Department of Health and the Mayor’s Office for Neighborhood Safety and Engagement.
Safe Streets employees deliver a unified message that violence is not acceptable. Mission: To reduce violence in Baltimore City using a health approach and behavior change methods. –Adapted from Cure Violence.
