Child and Youth Violence Prevention Services

Our Program provides funding to community-based initiatives across the state working to prevent youth violence.

The primary goal of DPH’s Youth Violence Prevention programs is to build the capacity of community based organizations to utilize positive youth development strategies to reduce multiple high-risk behaviors and threats to health and well-being. Research demonstrates youth with more developmental assets — such as positive family communication, caring school climate and sense of purpose — have better health outcomes.
