About Us

Founded in 1980, we are an energetic community-based non-profit organization that works to involve the community in making the Upper West Side of Manhattan a safe place for everyone who lives, works, and/or goes to school in the area.

To this end, we run a Safe Haven program on Manhattan's Upper West Side that serves to keep our children safe as they navigate the streets of the neighborhood; anti-violence workshops for young people in the neighborhood; a tutoring program for children who attend schools in need of improvement; and ACT, A Community Together, helping individual residents, block associations and tenant groups to organize against drug dealing on streets and in buildings and problem-solve around safety related issues on the Upper West Side.
