San Francisco’s Community Response Network Releases Summer Coverage Plan
Every year in May, San Francisco’s Community Response Network (CRN), various City departments and other community partners come together at the DCYF sponsored Summer Coverage Retreat to coordinate efforts and strategize solutions to curtail violence that may occur during the summer season. The product of this meeting is the annual CRN Summer Coverage Plan, which was released earlier this month.
The 2012 Summer Coverage Plan details the roles, responsibilities, specific activities, and plans for street outreach efforts for each of the CRN’s community-based partners and collaborating City departments from June 2012 to August 2012. The plan covers all the main geographical areas of San Francisco, including SFPD identified “hot spots,” SFUSD summer schools, and other areas deemed potentially troublesome by the CRN. The plan also details special events, outings, and retreats for high risk youth, such as neighborhood BBQs, basketball tournaments, and retreats to Santa Cruz.
The CRN is administered via two collaborative networks operating out of northwest and southeast San Francisco. The Northwest CRN is led by DCYF grantee Arriba Juntos, and operates in the Mission, Western Addition, Tenderloin, SOMA, and Excelsior. The Southeast CRN is led by DCYF grantee Bayview Hunters Point Foundation, and operates in Bay View Hunters Point, Visitacion Valley, Potrero Hill, Alemany, and Ocean View.
