Community Oversight

We have been fortunate to have a group of experienced and dedicated professionals in the field that have agreed  to come together and work with us in our efforts to reduce violence in Robeson County.

For the duration of the NC-ACE there has been a Community Advisory Council consisting representatives from the following agencies:

Robeson County Health Dept. Public Schools of Robeson County
Juvenile Crime Prevention Council NC Dept. of Public Safety
United Way of Robeson County EastPointe MH Services (SOC)
Communities In Schools Lumbee Tribe of NC
UNC-Pembroke Lumberton Police Dept.
Robeson County Sheriff’s Office District 16-B Court Services
Faith Based Community Chamber of Commerce
Department of Social Services NAACP

Another group that has made impact in the direction and services the NC-ACE project implemented was the Robeson County Violence Prevention Coalition which is a larger group of interested community members from parents, teachers, program providers and other leaders of the communities within Robeson County (Pembroke, Red Springs, St. Pauls) that are dedicated to stopping the youth violence problem in their communities.

Representatives from both entities now serve on the Board of Directors for the Robeson County Teen Court & Youth Services organization.
