Neighbors in White Center come together to do a neighborhood clean-up.

West Seattle, Delridge, South Park, White Center

Seattle Neighborhood Group has a long association with Seatte's White Center, Delridge, and West Seattle neighborhoods doing community community based crime prevention activities, neighborhood events, and helping to coordinate all kinds of projects. We work to help connect those living and working in the area to each other, and to increase safety in the neighborhoods by connecting people to their local community police. If you would like to know about current public safety and community building events in this area, please join our email list for Southwest Seattle!

Seattle Neighborhood Group is working with partner agencies in Southeast, Southwest and Central Seattle to support the Mayor's new anti-violence initiative focused on youth. The Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative gathers the resources of three neighborhoods to achieve two goals: a fifty percent reduction in juvenile violent crime referrals in the three neighborhoods, and a fifty percent reduction in suspensions/expulsions due to violent incidents in five selected middle schools. Existing community based organizations—which SYVPI has re-envisioned as Neighborhood Networks—lead the Initiative and serve as the hubs for connecting youth at risk of violence with needed support. The Networks provide ongoing engagement and follow up to ensure that the youth they serve are truly receiving or connected to the resources that they need.

SNG's East African outreach project works in all of Seattle's neighborhoods to strengthen the ties of this large immigrant population to the communities where they live and work.

SNG Resources

SNG brings many resources aside from our staff expertise in organizing groups and events:

  • Our Crime Prevention Education Team works in immigrant, low-income, and senior communities to educate on personal safety, using 9-1-1, identity theft, and fraud.
  • CPTED site surveys for changing the physical safety of an area.
  • Take Action Workshops for working with nuisance properties in your neighborhood.
  • Landlord Workshops to help area landlords develop and maintain crime free property in our neighborhoods
  • SNG funds and maintains two drop-in sites in the Central Area for law enforcement so they can complete paperwork without having to travel out of their assigned sector. This helps keep more officers in the neighborhoods where they are needed most.
  • SNG provides meeting space for blockwatch and neighborhood safety groups in the Central Area.
