Law & Policy

Welcome to the Street Outreach Program, a community initiative dedicated to fostering peace and transforming lives.

The program comprises several integral components designed to comprehensively address the diverse needs of its participants. Firstly, it establishes a robust network by connecting individuals with essential work resources, fostering professional growth and stability. Simultaneously, the program recognizes the significance of community engagement and incorporates community service opportunities to empower participants to give back and strengthen their social ties. Recognizing the legal challenges individuals may face, the program includes a court advocacy element to ensure legal representation and support. Moreover, a crucial focus is placed on mental and emotional well-being, offering a holistic approach to support during legal services. By integrating these key components, the program aims to provide a comprehensive support system that not only addresses immediate concerns but also fosters long-term empowerment and resilience.

Fresno's gang violence crisis

The program spearheaded by OB is not just a response to Fresno’s gang violence crisis; it’s a lifeline for the community. By intervening in the lives of at-risk individuals, the program aims to save lives and offer a way out of the dangerous cycle of gang life. It provides youth with opportunities and hope, steering them away from the destructive path that could lead to jail. Through the program’s efforts, the goal is clear: to empower individuals to become productive members of society, breaking free from the grip of violence and paving the way for a brighter, safer future for Fresno.
