Office of Safe & Healthy Neighborhoods

The Mission of the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods is to make Louisville the safest city in America and promote peace in neighborhoods by activating the collective power of youth, citizens, and the community. OSHN works to reduce community violence through a comprehensive violence prevention strategy that focuses on five core areas of
engagement: Community Building, Juvenile and Criminal Justice System, Health and Social Wellness, Economic
Development, and Education. Participate in our site visit to learn more.

Russell: A Place of Promise 

Russell: A Place of Promise (RPOP) is a justice-based initiative focused on generating investments in the people and places that make Louisville, Kentucky’s Russell neighborhood special. Sharing
a story with many historically Black neighborhoods across the country, Russell’s residents and businesses experienced the
devastating impacts of redlining and urban renewal, destroying opportunities for generational wealth building. With hundreds of millions of dollars in planned and underway investment, Russell is poised to experience a neighborhood renaissance. The time is right for new strategies led by residents and community leaders
that focus on Black wealth building and investment without displacement of residents or businesses. Learn more about RPOP and Russell through the outreach team as they discuss the initial strategies and goals, neighborhood history, and steps
community leaders are taking now to create a vision of Black wealth for the future.

Youth Violence Prevention Research Center 

“Science tells us that social norms affect individual behavior. If we think people who are like us act a certain way, we’re more
likely to act that way—whether we agree or not. But sometimes, our perceptions of those norms are inaccurate.”

 

The University of Louisville Youth Violence Prevention Research Center (UofL
YVPRC) brings together researchers, community representatives, communication experts, residents, practitioners, and policymakers to reduce youth violence in high-burden communities in Louisville, KY by changing social attitudes about violence. Join us during our site visit to learn more.

The Power of Pivot to Peace: Healing After Violence

Pivot to Peace is an opportunity for victims of stabbings and gunshot injuries, with the assistance of caseworkers and other community resources, to identify and address the factors in their lives that have put them at risk of violence, both physically
and mentally. It is also an opportunity to help them develop a plan to stay safe, develop skills to manage conflict to prevent
further injury or harm, respect differences, and to solve problems non-violently to make a change in their lives and communities.
