Community Explosions

The Virginia Attorney General's Office, the faith community and the city of Hampton will host "Community Explosions," a series of neighborhood resource gatherings. The Hampton Police Department and the city's Youth Violence Prevention Office are looking for service organizations and other vendors to take part in these community building events. These gatherings are meant to foster community engagement and build relationships between neighbors. These events are opportunities to raise awareness about resources available to families in the community, recruit committed volunteers, and allow concerned citizens the opportunity to directly connect with organizations that support positive outcomes for youth.
