The cycle of violence must be interrupted and replaced with another way. That way is Nonviolence.
The Nonviolence Chicago work is guided by its overarching philosophy of nonviolence, the specific elements of its intervention program draw from the methodology and knowledge base of Public Health, which emphasize a comprehensive approach that treats violence in much the same way as other life-threatening diseases that reach epidemic proportions.
At Nonviolence Chicago we incorporate a holistic engagement strategy that integrates four major program components:
* Street Outreach and Conflict Mediation
* Case Management
* Victim Services
* Nonviolence Training
* Community Organizing
