"I have a vested interest in making communities in the city a safer place. I’ve got nine kids, and I don’t want to get a phone call saying somebody that I could’ve reached out to killed my child and I did nothing about it..."


ABOUT SAFE PASSAGE / SAFE BLOCKS

YMI in partnership with Mayor Bowser's Office has partnered with school leadership around the D.C. Area. Safe Passage / Safe Blocks workers identify locations in and around school zones where additional support staff can assist with keeping students and families safe as they travel to and from school.
