NCM fulfills its mission by developing and implementing community outreach and engagement strategies that offer an array of activities and special events that include community mobilization, mediation, conflict resolution meetings, educational training and seminars, recreation, and other services through quality partnerships to create or improve knowledge, outcomes and impacts.
History - NCM was founded by Rev. Jacque Fielder in 1996 and incorporated in 1998 in response to the rampant gang violence that endangered the lives of innocent children and families and resulted in senseless deaths in the poorest neighborhoods of Allegheny County.
NCM provided a community meeting place and created an outreach called, Concerned Citizens of Greater Pittsburgh (CCOGP). CCOGP unified local leaders and provided leadership training for community members of all faith backgrounds, to serve as mediators to reduce violence to ultimately preserve the lives of innocent children and families. As a result, CCOGP, with their first grant from Jane Greenwood of Best Health Care mediated the most successful Gang Rally in the history of the City of Pittsburgh (Highland Park), resulting in a Cease-Fire and Peace-Truce between 5-Rival Gangs.
