PEACE IN THE STREETS

Peace In The Streets spreads our message of hope and compassion by assisting the inner city community with it’s daily needs. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the city of Charlottesville. With gun violence and poverty being two of the groups main focal points amongst others, a 24-hour hotline was created to offer the community immediate conflict resolution services and also employment resources. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.

PEACE IN THE STREETS AT A GLANCE

Peace In The Streets knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. All members of PITS were born and raised in Charlottesville, Va. It’s certain places that the average counselor or non-profit org can’t reach because it’s either unfamiliar or unwelcoming territory. Peace In The Streets community outreach is so effective because the majority of our members have lived in these neighborhoods and still have family and friends there. Our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Peace In The Streets.

A Voice For ‘US’

With this initiative, our goal is to not only provide conflict resolution, but to add voice and assistance to domestic violence, peer-to-peer melees, and other daily community concerns. Our goal is to stop daily altercations from escalating while not using law enforcement. Many community members lose trust in orgs that rely on law enforcement due to previous experiences. With that being said, PITS prefer to catch the problem at its roots, to keep law enforcement out of the equation. Our 24-hour hotline is our main connection to the community but we also receive info via Messenger @Peace In The Streets. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.

HAPPY SATURDAY COMMUNITY MEALS

Reinforcing our Commitment

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with community challenges. Hunger effects families in every city, worldwide. PITS works with other orgs, most notably the Happy Saturday Crew (Kristie Friday, Rico Hearns, Vaughn Yountz, and Myron Johnson), to distribute meals to housing areas throughout the city. While most of our food deliveries are self-funded, PITS has partnered with numerous food orgs to assist in reaching inner city families and is always searching for new partners to help fill this void. Happy Saturday Community Meals is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
