Safe, Hopeful Healthy BR is a coordinated program with Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome's Healthy City Initiative.
SHHBR is a connector, convener, facilitator, and strategic partner for community organizations, public safety advocates, and young leaders to create a safe, hopeful, and healthy Baton Rouge for all.
For the last 3 years, the Broome Administration has partnered with a variety of community-based organizations, and institutional stakeholders to build a collective vision and strategy to strengthen coordination, capacity, and partnerships to address the root causes of violence, and to advance policies and practices that are grounded in a culture of health.
By developing a public safety ecosystem, the diverse coalition of stakeholders, including survivors, advocates, and community partners work collaboratively to prevent all forms of violence and promote healing through four pillars:
Empower safe & healthy individuals, youth, families, and community
Build and Revitalize Safe and Hopeful Neighborhoods
Foster a healthy & hopeful culture of peace
Build infrastructure for healing-informed policies, practices, and systems
