Fighting Crime in School and the Neighborhood

NOC works in several neighborhoods where crime is a reality in the daily lives of the students we serve. Crime is a problem in the schools they attend and even in the neighborhoods where they live, including Avalon Shores (formerly Bluffton House) and Hilton Head Gardens, which were mentioned in a recent Island Packet article.  NOC’s 8 years of experience at the Oaks Apartments on Hilton Head have shown that crime occurrences can be changed by the presence of positive influences in the neighborhood.  NOC, working with other service providers, has helped build stronger communities, which attract responsible families.  NOC’s development model is a powerful way to build communities, which in turn can lead to reduced crime.
