Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $89,435)

The Milton S. Eisenhower Foundation will continue to replicate and evaluate scientifically proven model programs in Irvington, NJ. The grant is to replicate the Youth Safe Haven-Police Ministation (YSH) program. The YSH model integrates the American after school Youth Safe Haven concept with the Japanese police "koban" Ministation concept. Civilian mentors and local police officers trained as mentors provide social support, education and discipline to at risk youth, aged 6-12, after school. This "multiple solutions" program is designed to create multiple positive outcomes among at-risk children, youth, and families within the targeted community.
