iTHINK is a public safety and quality of life initiative created by Opportunity Centers of America, with a direct intent on providing a series of short term and long term programs, generating a community support system against violence for the purposes of reducing crime due to poverty, and transforming mindsets through opportunity and economic development in hard to reach areas.
iTHINK is essentially a life-saving effort that seeks to prevent and reduce criminal activity by tackling poverty and offering a variety of tools and educational training activities to enhance safety and life experiences, fostering a more positive environment. Educational training will include conflict resolution, de-escalation, consequences and financial literacy.
Most importantly, iTHINK starts from within the community. Local residence are provided the tools to tackle issues currently sweeping through the city. Select individuals will be able to securely provide the necessary information about crimes or other potentially violent behavior to select parties within the network, stamping out unsafe or illicit activities in the neighborhood. Together, this web of support is intended to create the understanding and action behind neighborhoods no longer tolerating criminal activities in the community.
INDIVIDUALLY WE ARE A DROP BUT TOGETHER , WE ARE AN OCEAN.
