“Safe City, Safe Neighborhood” Initiative Creating a Safe City for All

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay volunteers delivered booklets to 40 homes in Clearwater in an effort to help reduce local crime.


Clearwater, FL – On February 2, 2019 volunteers of the Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay went door-to-door in Clearwater’s Gateway Neighborhood, informing residents on the initiative to make Clearwater the safest city in the US by distributing a booklet called The Way to Happiness, a non-religious moral code written by L. Ron Hubbard.

In The Way to Happiness, L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Unless one can have confidence in the reliability of those about one, he himself is at risk. When those he counts upon let him down, his own life can become disordered and even his own survival can be put at risk. Mutual trust is the firmest building block in human relationships. Without it, the whole structure comes down.”

With this in mind, the Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay volunteers delivered the booklets to 40 homes. Clearwater’s crime index is currently 20% higher than the US average, per, and volunteers have been doing booklet distributions in Clearwater neighborhoods in order to increase the mutual trust with residents and reduce crime.

Ms. Tanja Cranton, Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay said, “With The Way to Happiness, you can make a positive impact and help reduce crime and violence. We will continue going neighborhood-to-neighborhood to achieve the goal to create a safe city for all to live in, where people feel safe in their homes and children are able to play in the parks without concern to their safety.”

Results from using The Way to Happiness have been seen nationally, such as a community activist from Los Angeles, California who said, “We’ve had a very good response from people in our community since distributing The Way to Happiness. At our local building project there were a lot of problems between tenants, disputes, lack of respect and a LOT of crime. The building manager gave books out at the monthly tenant meeting. As a result she noticed a significant change—and the crime rate was going down too. This was from the book.”
