This grant will continue to support New Beginnings, a comprehensive citywide crime prevention strategy that helps youth to safely exit gang lifestyles without involving law enforcement and helping young people pursue high school diplomas and college and career preparation as an alternative. Additionally, DCC will expand and deepen their partnership and coordination with other related organizations and efforts that will expand the reach to meaningfully reduce rates of youth violence and chronic absenteeism.
