dc.description.abstractThe Faith and Community Empowerment Strategies (FACES) project was designed to enhance the involvement and capacity of eight clergy members in crime prevention and economic development within the University Park Weed and Seed neighborhood. University Park has approximately fifteen churches located in the area; however, there is miniscule involvement from the clergy in crime prevention and economic development. Lack of awareness, knowledge, lack of skills in managing CED and crime prevention initiatives, lack of communication and financial resources are issues among the churches serving the neighborhood that directly contribute to the clergy's noninvolvement. FACES addresses the problem through a series of educational initiatives, i.e., crime prevention, economic development workshops and trainings. Through increased and enhanced knowledge and resources the FACES project changes the lack of involvement of clergy members within the University Park neighborhood in North Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The project was implemented with eight clergy members within the University Park Weed and Seed neighborhood. The project began in early spring 2009 and concluded in late winter 2010.
