COMMUNITY VIOLENCE  INTERVENTION
A Community Based Approach to Violence Intervention & Prevention 

Violence Brings Only Temporary Victories; Violence, By Creating Many More Social Problems Than It Solves, Never Brings Permanent Peace.

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Improving Health By Promoting Peace

CVI works to prevent violence across the lifespan and reduces it's negative impacts when it occurs. We understand violence to be anything that hurts or destroys any person, place or thing. We believe that exposure to violence in the home and/or community can change the life of a child forever, "Children See...Children Do".

We believe in primary prevention.

Preventing violence from happening in the first place by increasing awareness, identifying alternatives and responding early. By surrounding children with protection, building on strengths, supporting parents and caregivers, community connections are strengthened and work toward a culture of peace and justice.
