WHAT PEACE ANGELS DO
• Engage residents on the streets, parks, spiritual meeting places, and common areas in the community. Our goal is to go to the places where young people hang out.
• Refer community resources to young people from our pool of resources that may lead them to greater opportunities. We do not want to just tell our young people to not join gangs and get involved with the street life we are asking them “how can we make your life better”. From that point on we should be making a point to getting in touch with a guardian who will allow us to point them in the right direction for the services they are in need of
• Connect to the greater community in an effort to bring more people around to the peace angels point of view. It takes a village to raise a child therefore we are combining our passion in helping young people with the resources of the community.
• Mentor young people in areas such as school, personal matters and in some cases spiritual growth. For the most part most people who later go on to a life of crime did not receive or did not recognize help from loved ones, community or spiritual leaders,
Go into the community with the intention of keeping young people out of prison and free from violent actions on their part. We are not a vigilante group, we are not law enforcement.
• Work to reduce violence by changing the mind set of young people who may be on the fence when it comes to violence and how it effects the Roseland area.
• We recruit residents in the area in which we are volunteering. People who live or work in the area they are volunteering have a invested interest in making sure that violence drops in their area. Being a peace angel volunteer is one great way to make that happen

Standing in the gap: Parents in violent communities stress about keeping kids safe

Robert Douglas grew up in Roseland, on 114th and Prairie, in the late 80s and early 90s when the murder rate was double what it is today. Still, Douglas said he felt safer back then.
