On the heels of a polarizing political New Year’s Day – which featured an agreement to stave off the Fiscal Cliff, but no such vote on Hurricane Sandy relief – on Wednesday “Piers Morgan Tonight” guest host Wolf Blitzer welcomed Christine Quinn for her reaction to Congress’s progress:

Though these are problems which Malvern has faced for a very long time, there are still people who have been fighting to keep it safe, by offering their time and money towards youth and youth and social related programs which try and help steer people in the right path by offering services which will open doors to further opportunity.

Another worker from Dr. Sheridan Cyrus’ Dentist office when asked about the crime rate in Malvern also said that she is also new to the area and hasn’t seen as much crime in recent years, but she has heard that in passed years the crime in Malvern was extremely high.

A part of the reason for the decreasing crime rate in Malvern is because of the outreach programs that have been organized in order to keep young persons off of the street.

A few of the neighboring organizations have gathered together to help keep young persons off the “streets” by trying to get them involved in community activities and offering them help with things like employment . This is a huge for why the crime rate in Malvern has been decreasing.

Malvern Christian Assembly, located on 6705 Sheppard Avenue East is a church which offers many programs for youth such as Prayer Meeting, Men’s Soccer, and Ladies Bible study. It began in September 1981. Now in 2012, the church holds a membership of over 1500 persons from over 45 different nationalities.

They meet at the church every Sunday for worship and accept  visitors.
