Community Violence

Addressing Violence in the Community

Racism, poverty, unemployment. Community violence has a myriad of possible roots but always the same result — lives lost and a fraying of the fabric of the community.

The Resilience United method helps communities confront violence by bringing together residents and stakeholders to actively take part in addressing the causes and finding solutions that work for each unique situation. Through our process, communities develop strategies to:

  • Listen to residents’ experiences, concerns and ideas
  • Create opportunities for residents to bond through events and community improvement programs
  • Institute prevention programs
  • Improve security and police relations
  • Open the lines of communication between businesses and organizations to encourage cooperation

Building resilience through our three-phase program helps communities solve their current situation and lay the groundwork for preventing violence in the future.
