Q15434
How will the Neighborhood Resource & Recreation Centers help to address youth violence and crime in the City of Cleveland?

Mayor Jackson established a strategic plan to address the root causes of violence and toxic stress by promoting wellness and resiliency especially for our youth and young adults. Neighborhood Resource & Recreation Centers are equipped with trained Trauma-Informed Care staff members and social workers who provide year-round center-based resources, programs and activities.

Programming will now span the following six target areas to provide a more holistic approach: Youth & Adult Education, Job & Career Readiness, Health & Wellness, The Arts, Sports & Recreation and Youth Development, Mentorship, Leadership & Community Service.
