The Tower Grove East Neighborhood Ownership Model group (TGE NOM) provides management and support of community programs with the goal of creating and sustaining a safer, stronger neighborhood. We sponsor the following programs:
Block captains are action-oriented individuals who use their observation, listening, communicating and problem-solving skills to work with their neighbors for the betterment of the community.
Neighbors Out & About (NOA) is a group of resident volunteers that plan, facilitate and/or participate in neighborhood events designed to encourage neighbors to get out into their community and become active, engaged and aware.
Neighborhood Court Advocates attend trials for crimes committed in their neighborhood. Advocates make the experience of a trial better for the victim by showing that the neighborhood is willing to stand together to ensure the safety of it’s residents. By appearing at hearings, Neighborhood Court Advocates show judges that the community is invested in the result of the trial while reminding criminals that justice will be pursued.
Trained volunteers write statements about how a particular crime or conduct has impacted the neighborhood. These statements are used by the Circuit Attorney both at bond hearings and at sentencing to help the Court realize the ripple effect of crime.
Trained volunteers connect with victims of crime to provide assistance and services necessary to speed their recovery from the criminal act, and to support and aid them as they move through the criminal justice process.
