Safe Hopeful Healthy

SHH logoSafe, 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
