Community Response Team

Program Summary 

The Community Response Team addresses neighborhood violence within District neighborhoods. They work with communities to identify strengths and needs, develop strategies to address concerns, identify and link to services, conduct empowerment and healing events, link stakeholders, and advocate for vulnerable residents.

How does it help? 

Communities with neighborhood conflicts need help to heal and grow as a whole. They often have strengths that they don’t realize. The CRT helps communities help themself in finding resources and services and build a more positive and empowering environment.
