  • Frequently Asked Questions
    Why did Ring decide to pursue this program?
    At Ring, we believe in helping to make neighborhoods safer for everyone. Achieving this mission requires the guidance of those who know their communities best, and we are committed to working with safety and community organizations to better understand how we can support and make a positive impact in neighborhoods.

    Kids Off the Block is a Chicago community organization working to offer at-risk youth a multi-service program that focuses on promoting good health, educational achievements, and personal and social growth. By working with Kids Off the Block, we are able to support youth, their families and individuals living in Chicago neighborhoods.
    Why did Ring choose Chicago, specifically?
    After Ring launched a community program last year in Kansas City, members of the Chicago community approached Ring in hopes of developing a similar program to support local residents in neighborhoods impacted by violence.
