The Government of the District of Columbia is developing a coordinated plan to address some of the challenges at Ballou that have contributed to the outbreak of conflict and violent crime. The plan will coordinate services and outreach provided by District agencies and community-based organizations operating in the Ballou community. In order to ensure that these services reach the students in greatest need, a team will be conducting assessments to identify students and families most at risk for violence. In support of these efforts, a Ballou hotline has been established to provide ready access to the community resource network.
