Safe and Sound: Making Baltimore's Mean Streets Safe

From 1996 to 1998, Baltimore had the highest youth homicide rate in the nation. In 1998, Baltimore’s Safe and Sound Campaign initiated a research-based effort to reduce juvenile homicide. "The commitment and high visibility of a variety of community institutions, but especially African-American churches, is what differentiates the Baltimore initiative from many other violence prevention efforts around the country."
