SNUG- Gun Violence Reduction

It’s time to disrupt the cycle of gun violence in our most vulnerable communities.

Our Program
SNUG, "guns" spelled backwards, is an evidence-based violence SNUG.pngreduction initiative.

We work with community residents, businesses and community-based organizations to reduce and prevent shootings and killings.

FCA works in collaborative partnerships with the Hempstead Police Department and the Nassau County District Attorney’s office. We rely on outreach workers, faith leaders, and community leaders to intervene in conflicts and promote alternatives to violence.

SNUG utilizes credible messengers to work side by side with those community members who are now seeking a fresh start.
