LifeBridge Health's Center for Hope expands oversight of Safe Streets sites

Safe Streets logo

Freedom Jones directs violence intervention for the Center for Hope at LifeBridge Health, which currently oversees four Safe Streets sites in Baltimore and will adopt two more next year. There, outreach workers mediate conflict before it turns deadly. We ask Jones about stopping gun violence and treating the trauma it causes.

Learn more about Mayor Scott's plans for violence prevention and community violence intervention.
