DMSMCA’s Vision for Safety
The Daniel McIntyre/St. Matthews Community Association’s vision of community safety is to provide and create programming that invests in the future of our neighbourhood. By encouraging all residents to get involved in safety and youth centered community events, education and information sharing we build a friendlier, safer and healthier community in a sustainable way.
Creating a Safety Network
Building and improving DMSMCA’s relationships with other service providing agencies in the area has been a top priority for maintaining the Safety & Youth Engagement Coordinator program. We have been able to form partnerships and work collaboratively with the Spence Neighbourhood Association, West Broadway Development Corp, Sage House, Greenway School, Winnipeg Police Service, Block Parents, and Canadian Centre for Child Protection, Central Neighbourhoods Development Corp, Safe Communities Winnipeg, West Central Women’s Resource Centre, John M King School and the West End Biz.
The DMSMCA Safety Network also includes area residents who are interested in making their neighbourhood a safer place. We are actively working within the neighbourhood, establishing a Block Contact network of residents who participate in the Safety Committee, planning safety events, audits, barbeques and participate in our safety consultation process.
