About ONSE

The Safer, Stronger DC Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement (ONSE) was created to address violence in the District while assisting families dealing with the grief and trauma caused by these occurrences. As part of Mayor Bowser’s FY2018 Budget, and in compliance with the Neighborhood Engagement Achieves Results (NEAR) Act (PDF), ONSE created to consolidate the work being done by the Safer, Stronger DC Community Partnerships Office (SSDCCP) and the Community Stabilization Program (CSP) under one mission.

In October 2017, ONSE opened its office at 100 42nd Street, NE in Ward 7. The goal is to co-locate with other agencies, including the Department of Human Services, the Department of Employment Services, and the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, that will focus on behavioral health, educational engagement, and workforce development.
