SNUG Violence Prevention Program

What do you do when your community has had more that 232 shootings in several years? In Yonkers, you call the YMCA.

SNUG was established to help local law enforcement and anti-violence community groups steer at-risk New Yorkers away from a culture of violence. SNUG, which is guns spelled backward, was created in response to a phenomenal number of shootings and killings in 10 communities in New York State and follows the Chicago Cease-fire Model.
