Active Incident Training by Lynn Police

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, family members and everyone effected by the recent shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  The recent tragedies in Tennessee and Texas last year and Pittsburgh a few days ago demonstrate the need for some type of training to make the community feel safe.  It is unfortunate as a society we have to prepare for such evil acts of violence.  The Lynn Police Department would like to offer active incident training for the faith based community.  I have included Officer Ron Brown and Officer John Mackin in this email as they are the officers that offer active incident training.  Please reach out to them to schedule it if interested.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me by email or phone.

The Haven Project: equiping homeless youth

Tuesday through Friday, 4-7 p.m.
57 Munroe Street, Lynn second floor

The mission of the Haven Project is to equip and empower homeless unaccompanied youth by providing them with the support and resources to transition out of homelessness and lead independent lives. By identifying each client’s unique needs and circumstances, we are able to tailor an individualized plan for achieving success and stability.

We are on the second floor at 57 Munroe St. in downtown Lynn, MA right next to the Lynn Commuter Rail and bus station. Our program hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00-7:00pm. Young people in need of help may stop by at any of those hours. We are also available outside of program hours by phone at 781-913-5738 to answer questions about the program and to offer emergency assistance to young adults.

Services provided:

Employment: We actively seek and advocate for appropriate job placements.

Basic needs: Here we evaluate individual situations and provide a space for the youth to get off the street, get out of chaotic environments, and relax

Education: All participants are actively encouraged to obtain a high school level education and learn how to communicate in English

Community: Young adults are coached to develop appropriate social skills via workshops and other program activities.

A place to live: We help youth develop a viable list of temporary housing options and we facilitate contact.

And beyond: Once a client has reached a certain level of stability and independence, we work to launch them onto the career paths or educational tracks that will lead them to long-term success.

This organization is always looking for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Cooks for a meal a month or more
  • Tutoring in GED/Hiset and High school
  • Presentations on a variety of practical life skills
