The Community Navigators team's (CN) primary responsibility is to connect those engaged in violence to supportive counseling, crisis intervention assessment and mediation, referrals and resource information in order to restore peace and avoid arrest and incarceration. Outreach Workers provide mentoring to youth and young adult ages 14-30 with achieving short term life goals.
Skilled and trained Outreach Workers are the linchpin to the success of this initiative. OutreachWorkers work individually and as a team to prevent community-based violence. We help residents with:
Life Management Skills & Social Service Assistance – Participants are given assistance with acquiring birth certificates, Social Security cards, and other important personal documents.
Wellness Support –Participants are connected to confidential wellness evaluation and therapeutic counseling
