Overview

Throughout our nation’s history, faith and community-based organizations have served both as sources of comfort and vehicles of support for those in need. Grieving families and others who have suffered victimization often turn to leaders of these organizations in times of need.

These organizations are often effective at gaining the trust of high-risk youth and their families, a core competence that allows faith and community-based organizations to directly provide aid and help connect these young people and their families with other supports through the public service sector. Faith and community-based organizations can help provide a second chance to youth who offend and/or who are victims after a tragedy and restore hope in these youth to undertake positive life changes and move toward healing. These organizations are critical partners in local efforts to prevent and intervene in youth violence and promote well-being of children and youth.
