About Safe Streets Campaign

 

During the past 24 years, the Safe Streets Campaign has partnered with local organizations, community members and local government to better equip individuals and neighborhoods to combat crime and take back their streets.
 

Our Vision

Every Pierce County neighborhood is safe and welcoming-a great place to raise kids.

Our Mission

Safe Streets empowers individuals, families, youth,
neighborhoods and organizatins to create safe communities.

Today our volunteers and staff are dedicted to accomplishing our mission by;

Organizing neighborhoods and communities for action.

Through forming block organizations, we help people plant the seeds of grassroots, community leadership. We connect residents with necessary community resources to effectively tackle a wide-range of community challenges. And we involve our young people to improve the physical, social and economic conditions of our community.

Develop leadership among youth and adults.

Our Youth Leading Change program builds skills in young people to help them sustain a drug and violence-free lifestyles. Young people act as mentors and role models for their peers and younger students in schools and neighborhoods. We also support neighborhood block members as they build their leadership skills through community improvement projects.

Bring community and strategic partners together on specific problems or opportunities relevant to building safe communities.

We help form broad-based alliances of community organizations and neighborhood stakeholders to face specific problems. We lead a county and statewide methamphetamine eradication project. Much of the crime in our community—especially violent crime—is tied to drugs, and methamphetamines in particular. Gang violence, truancy, and the reentry of ex-offenders into the community also represent significant threats to the safety of our neighborhoods. The Safe Streets Campaign and our strategic partners continue to work to build neighborhood safety.

 

Our financial accountability.

Overall, Safe Streets and its Board of Directors have diligently worked to maintain a balanced budget.  Yearly financial audits demonstrate the continued health of the organization due to the tenacious oversight of the Board of Directors and Executive Director.  Each year as a non-profit 501(3)(c), Safe Streets file the required 990 form to the IRS.
