Violence Prevention & Intervention
Where the Community Comes Together
We have staff working in the community, on the streets, in the schools, and places in the city where youth gather to promote peace and build positive relationships, teach youth alternatives to violence, model nonviolence, take steps to prevent retaliatory acts, and assist in mediating conflicts on the street.
Our dedicated staff can connect a youth with multiple services in the community including mental health services, emergency services, health care, job training, educational services, social supports, and mentoring.
Our staff can also provide training and information on mediating conflict, can provide support and education to parents about youth violence, and can provide support to victims of violence. We can also help people set and achieve goals, providing jobs and development programs for youth, and support victims of violence.
