The mission of Safe Streets Wichita is the prevention of substance-related harms through community collaboration, the advancement of health equity, and the promotion of mental wellness and community well-being.
We acknowledge that every community experiences substance-related harm. Some communities experience a disproportionate amount of harm. Our strategies center those impacted and systemically underserved due to poverty, class, racism, social isolation, past trauma, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other social inequities which affect people’s vulnerability and capacity to effectively deal with substance-related harm. We focus on addressing disparities and promoting prevention for your and equity for all with lived experiences.
Our coalition meets every first Tuesday of the month at 6 pm.
