Chapter 24:
Neighborhood or Community Solutions


In this chapter we turn our attention to solutions to the gang situation which originate at the neighborhood or community level. We'll take a look at what neighborhood residents could do to reduce gang activity and the need for coordination and cooperation among neighborhood- and community social institutions, organizations and agencies.

The chapter concludes with a discussion of four different community-based solutions to gang activity and youth violence: community forums, task force groups, community-based youth agencies, and the Adopt an Agency program.
