Kids Safe Zone

On June 1, 2015, the Kids Safe Zone opened to provide a safe, comfortable and secure place for children in the Sandtown-Winchester community that suffers from a lack of resources that the closing of Baltimore City recreation centers created. The Kids Safe Zone, for at-risk children ages 5 to 17 years old, offers recreation that includes flat screen TVs, Xbox gaming systems, board games, organized sports teams, a computer lab, girls and boys mentoring programs, peer led support groups, licensed counseling, field trips, a study lab and homework assistance. In the wake of the most recent Baltimore City uprising as a result of the Freddie Gray murder, the resounding notion across the city was that Baltimore City children, specifically children in Sandtown Winchester were defunct of resources, lacked recreation and needed an outlet, Penn North Community Resource Center is answering the call.
