The "Safe Walk Home" Program, originally the Northside Mothers Group, is a volunteer-based neighborhood patrol program in Near Northside Houston created by Stella Mireles-Walters to help ensure that all children are safe walking to and from school.
Safe Walk Home is an award-winning grassroots organization that was formed in 2016 after the murder of a 6th grader as he was walking home from school on a busy street. He was not helped as he was being attacked and murdered. Stella Mireles formed a community safety training program consisting of watching the students as they walk to and from school. The program consists of reporting suspicious activity, identifying the suspect, and rendering first aid if needed. They also work in partnership with self-defense instructors in order to provide self-defense classes.
Train residents on the proper way to report suspicious activities and help lower crime in their communities.
Enable students and families to be empowered with tools to lower crime in their communities and form strong partnerships with local police and elected officials.
