Clean and Safe Program

The Price Charities Clean and Safe Program is supported by a grant from Price Philanthropies and administered by the Urban Corps of San Diego County.

The program supports the beautification of six City Heights’ neighborhoods (Corridor, Teralta West, Teralta East, Fairmount Village, Cherokee Point, Castle) and provides employment to six City Heights young adults.

Corps members remove litter, graffiti, and illegally dumped items. They also provide landscaping services in public areas by pulling weeds, trimming limbs, and mowing grass.

Corps members barricade and report any observed sidewalk hazards and report all street lights and light poles which have been damaged or are malfunctioning.

Participants in the program acquire job skills; learn resume writing, interviewing, and job search; receive educational assistance to obtain their high school diplomas; and receive assistance in acquiring full-time employment or attending post-secondary education.

The Urban Corps of San Diego County is a local, non-profit youth conservation organization.
