Safety Gates Project
  • WGC worked with York City Police to design a project to install gates in alleyways between homes in a high-crime city neighborhood.

  • In 2012, volunteers and funding partners fabricated and installed 300 gates.

  • Since then, crime has dropped 22% in the Gates Project neighborhood.
