Whatsoever Community Center

Program Summary:
As documented by the crime "hot spot" maps, Whatsoever is surrounded by areas designated as being "high crime." Whatsoever's goal is to be an oasis among these hot spots—to prevent more youths from falling into crime or becoming victims. Addressing the issues that youth/young adults and their families encounter cannot be assisted with a “cookie cutter” solution. The staff at Whatsoever, with their connection to the community and experience with the resources it takes to overcome these issues, is completely committed to putting preventive practices in action.
