The Shannon Community Safety Initiative
The Shannon Community Safety Initiative offers outreach, case management, youth leadership training, and job opportunities through a city-wide, inter-agency violence prevention partnership serving Lynn youth ages 14–24.
LifeScene is the fiscal manager of the collaborative and also provides programmatic oversight. Recognizing that supporting the family also supports the youth, family assistance and referral services are also included in our efforts to effect lasting change.
