Targeted Violence Prevention Projects with Community Partners Uniters work on teams, each with a community partner, to implement a targeted violence prevention project that (1) addresses risk factors identified by the group, and (2) advances a goal of the community partner. A budget of $10,000 supports each project.
Below are possible starting points for projects that each Uniters team will design with their community partner: ● CONTACT Helpline: expand and/or strengthen CONTACT Helpline resources, information, and referrals and/or emotional listening support services relating to targeted violence in Franklin County. ● Just for Today Recovery & Veteran's Support Services: expand and/or strengthen PTSD Veteran Recovery Support program in Dauphin County. ● Mediation Services of Adams County: increase de-escalation techniques in volatile situations and/or expand restorative justice in Adams County to enhance protective factors like repaired relationships and/or transform toxic online discourse into more constructive engagement. ● Suicide Prevention of York: expand suicide survivor support groups, reduce mental health stigma, and/or broaden critical incident training to address “suicides by cop” in York County.
