Sadly, gang and gun violence have become routine parts of day-to-day city life. Hundreds of young lives are cut short each year and thousands of families are left facing unspeakable loss. These senseless deaths diminish us all. But while we all feel the heartbreak, most of us feel we can do nothing to end it. Pastor Corey Brooks and Project Hood are confronting youth violence head on. Pursuing his mission _ “ending violence and building communities, one neighborhood at a time”, Pastor Brooks and his outreach efforts Project Choices, Brothers on the Block/Sisters on the Street and Summit of Hope, provide neighborhood kids with positive adult role models and one-on-one mentoring.
