Safe Passage

Teamwork Englewood joins a number of community groups across the City that support public safety around schools. Despite the stay-at-home order essentially closing schools Safe Passage workers continued to serve on their posts throughout the entire stay at home order. Safe passage team members helped with food distribution at schools ensuring families were safe as they came to schools to get meals. Once students began to return our Safe Passage workers were and continue to be frontline workers in keeping student safe. As conflict and violence increased across the City it has been Safe Passage workers that at times have felt the brunt of this. Our Safe Passage team has meet the challenge and have gone beyond their duties to help students and work more closely with school administrations to address a rise in concerns at schools, especially High Schools.
