The Guardian Angels Today
New York has seen startling change during the past 37 years. Through it all there has been one constant -The Guardian Angels’ service to New Yorker’s. As promoters of safety and empowerment, The Guardian Angels continue to teach communities to take control and responsibility of both their environment and their lives. Now the “GA” Community is global as they reach citizens around the world. The Guardian Angels work toward the day when their Street Patrols are no longer needed. A day when all citizens are directly involved in their communities, coming together to solve the larger societal issues that lead to crime in the first place.
The Guardian Angels remain optimistic that such a day will come. Sadly however, that day is not today. So as the need continues so does the GA; working to keep the streets safe and continuing to positively impact as many young people as possible. Safety Patrols deal with the daily reality of crime while the Youth Programs act as community outreach to prevent crime long before it happens. The Future we look towards can be the incredible place we all want, but only if we are all willing to do whatever we can, whenever we can, and wherever we can.
