This proposal seeks to bring community partners to include citizens, business, community leaders, and faith based partners together in an effort to begin working toward a strategy of solutions through a neighborhood centers approach in high risk communities. The People to People Neighborhood Centers Project will serve as the catalyst to begin this process. This proposal seeks to work closely with city and community leaders to: (1) conduct a needs assessment by determining the best site for locating a neighborhood center; (2) work with city leadership to establish existing facilities that may be used as a model neighborhood center; (3) work with citizens and community partners to determine possible services to be delivered through a neighborhood center with an emphasis on model programs that target at risk youth and their families; and(4) facilitate a sustainability plan which uses local private and government resources to operate established neighborhood centers. Performance measurements will begin with the securing and analysis of city crime and social service data to identify the targeted at risk communities that will house the first Neighborhood Resource Center.
