#NOMOVIOLENCE INITIATIVE

There have been calls across the city to have community-based organizations strategize how to curb the violence. NOMO’s (New Options New Opportunities) mission is to provide a safe place for youth to develop life skills and nurture their potential to break the cycle of violence (physical, psychological, cultural, verbal, financial, etc) in the lives of those we serve by providing them a pathway to success and poverty in their communities. NOMO is championing a proactive strategy that coordinates organizations together at the right moment in an effort that makes sense and progresses to combat these issues.
 

 

“Without a proactive strategy that coordinates organizations together at the right moment in an effort that makes sense and progresses to combat these issues, it will only get worse. NOMO refuses to sit on the sidelines,  and aims to work together to support our students to have a safe place to better themselves through education and entering a path towards life-sustaining careers.” 

~ Rickey Duncan, NOMO Foundation Executive Director

 

OUR GOAL

Currently, with 3 locations in the most underserved communities in Philadelphia which also have the highest rates of gun violence, and its direct work with the youth from the juvenile justice system, NOMO is working to ensure all of its participants have what they need to be prepared for the school year and have a sustained safe place for them after school. To that end, NOMO is launching the #NOMOviolence campaign that will work with local and national partners to ensure our students have the resources they need ranging from counseling to career skill development to basic school supplies.
