This is a Project that Asks ALL of Us to Pay Attention and do whatever we can to help.  The national officials are in town for the kick-off, but it will require the strong involvement and the commitment of community residents and local organizations to make this work and put a end (or strong deduction) to the ongoing violence.  It requires getting to the root of the problems. 

We need to address the issues in the homes, the schools and the community environment. 

We need the commitment of parents, grandparents, Foster-Care, pastors, school counselors, outreach workers, and all who have meaningful contacts with our young people. 

We need more parenting workshops starting when the teenagers (and older women) get pregnant.  Stressed out men and women, boys and girls, who lack the skills and the means to care for themselves often do not make loving, supportive and effective parents. 

We need to start at the inception of the problems.  It has to be about Prevention!

We need to ask ourselve -- why would a 13 year-old prefer to hang out in the streets for 8-10 hours rather than being at home? 

What do these children who hang out all these hours find in the street that they do not find at home?

How can we help to change the home environment to make it more hospitable and conducive to shaping an emotionally and psychologically healthy human being?

Can Bold Federal Action Head Off a Covid-19 Housing Disaster?

The United States has never seen the scale of potential housing displacement that families are facing right now. The country needs an immediate, unprecedented federal housing relief plan—with rental assistance, foreclosure protection and housing aid to state/local governments—to keep families in their homes and protect communities from deep and lasting economic scars.
