Why Faith-Based Crime Prevention Matters

Speaker Series Invitation

Please join us for our upcoming Speaker Series event, “Why Faith Based Crime Prevention Matters.”

About the session

Join us as we discuss the role that faith-based agencies can play to reduce crime and improve community safety. Our panelists will discuss creative approaches to address crime in our communities, the interplay between faith-based agencies, mainstream social service agencies and crime prevention, and the importance of partnership at all levels.

We will also explore how faith-based agencies can bring an important, sometimes overlooked perspective to services available to community members in need. After all, crime prevention is a shared responsibility.
