THE INITIATIVE

Real-life superheroes saving the world, 
one good deed at a time.

WHO WE ARE

The Initiative is a grass roots, global group of volunteers comprised of everyday citizens who have banded together across states and countries to do something heroic each day. We often wear costumes to draw attention to our causes. From homeless outreach to neighborhood watch patrols to free self-defense classes and garbage pickup, the Initiative seeks to better and empower our communities, one good deed at a time.
We are students, teachers, professionals, husbands, wives, parents. We are trained in CPR, de-escalation, self-defense, and various forms of management. We are members of the Community Emergency Response Team, Citizen Police Academy, and neighborhood watch groups. We volunteer in weekly outreach events, used needle pickup patrols, free self-defense classes and ongoing crime prevention. Some of us are members of the Real Life Superhero (RLSH) community and can be found on Facebook, and as administrators in RLSH welcome groups for new community members.

Sometimes we wear costumes, sometimes we don't. But we're always in superhero mode and ready to serve our community.

ACTIVITIES

Making A Difference

NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY PATROL

We strive to create a safer environment for our communities by providing neighborhood safety patrols. Utilizing Citizen Police Academy courses, we provide another set of eyes and ears for our local law enforcement.

HOMELESS OUTREACH

Our members can usually be found carrying a few extra pairs of socks, granola bars, water, etc. to give to those in need. Each month several of our branches host outreach events. Everyone is invited to participate!

USED NEEDLE PICKUP AND DISPOSAL

At The Initiative, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this hazardous and growing issue. The location and elimination of used needles is by no means an easy feat, but through consistency and community empowerment, we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. Since our first pickup in 2012, we've collected over 11,000 needles. We invite you to learn more and lend your support by coming out on a Sunday to clean up the streets.
