beneficiary-2013-q3-logo-cvCure Violence treats community violence as a disease, promoting prevention, diagnoses, and curative steps. More specifically, Cure Violence has three steps to dealing with an “infection” of violence: detecting and interrupting potential infectious events, determining who are most likely to cause another infectious event, and reducing their likelihood of developing and subsequently transmitting the infection, changing the underlying social and behavioral norms, or environmental conditions, that directly relate to this infection. Cure Violence’s program has been proven to eliminate or reduce violence in Chicago, New York, and Baltimore, and the program works effectively across the United States.
