Baltimore Young Men

In 2018, Roca joined the efforts in Baltimore to curb violence and bring about change. Our role is small, but focused: find the young people who are in the throes of violence, the ones who are not ready for change yet. We knock on their doors relentlessly until they respond, build relationships, and teach them life-saving skills to help them build the safe life they want. We work with whoever we can to keep them safe, and use data and research to get better and prove that it works. We know change takes time, but we also know change is possible.
