Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2000, $1,500,000)

The purpose of this program is to reduce crime through a collaborative approach that includes law enforcement, door-to-door community organizing and youth development programs. Safe and Sound provides programs to 17,000 youth per year at Safe Places. Programs operate positive alternative activities during the hours when youth are most susceptible to substance abuse and crime.

In the past two years five additional Wisconsin cities (Beloit, Eau Claire, Green Bay, LaCrosse, Racine, and Waukesha) have developed Safe and Sound models suitable to their communities. All seek to reduce crime by collaborating with law enforcement and offering positive youth alternatives during after school hours when youth are most vulnerable to crime as perpetrators or victims. NCA/NCF

The purpose of this program is to continue to support a community-based anti-crime effort based on a collaborative approach, which includes law enforcement, door-to-door community organization and safe places for youth. Together, these strategies have helped to reduce crime in 20 high crime neighborhoods by 43.8% (1997-2001). In 2005, this program+s funds will be used to directly fund five Safe Places serving a projected 1,000 unduplicated youth ages 10-19 and their families. In 2006, the funds will be used to support 13 Safe Places serving a projected 4,000 youth ages 10-19 and their families. The total number of individuals served will be provided programs and services.
