Healthy Neighborhood Initiative

Mayor Frank G. Jackson announced multiple updates to the office of Prevention, Intervention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults (PIOYY). Led by Chief Duane Deskins, the office aligns city resources and creates community collaboration to reduce youth violence. PIOYY has planned multiple programs to address violence as a public health issue, and is made possible by the mayor’s enhanced budget and Issue 32.
