    hi i am doing a project for Truman college in uptown on the Austin community. I am seeing lots of websites dedicated to helping the community and i am specifically looking into community programs for children and teens. Are these programs centralized in certain parts of Austin? Or are they widespread? Do you think they are effective in keeping children safe and out of trouble? any comments on Austins programs would be very helpful, thank you.
