Publisher(s):
This Blueprint is a framework to identify the range of roles and partnerships in which stakeholders can engage and activities that will prevent violence in all its forms, including child and elder abuse, intimate partner violence, date rape and sexual assault, suicide, youth and community violence, and hate violence. "This Blueprint was developed by a diverse group of stakeholders from across the county representing city and county elected officials, county departments and agencies, city program staff and police chiefs, legislators, community based organizations, and youth. Participants met regularly over the course of nine months to discuss structure and content issues and reviewed materials in between. Further, their work was informed by interviews and focus groups with additional elected officials, law enforcement, youth, community-based and grassroots organizations, agency and department staff and leadership, and others. Finally, the Blueprint was informed by research and practitioner wisdom from around the country." The goals of this Blueprint are threefold: To decrease the presence of risk factors that contribute to violence and increase the presence of resilience factors that are protective against violence at the individual, family, and community levels. To increase accountability for violence prevention related outcomes, foster violence prevention leadership in the County, increase coordination of violence prevention efforts, and enhance understanding of effective violence prevention approaches, programs, and policies. To decrease the level of all forms of violence throughout the County over time. Objectives and Recommendations In order to achieve the goals, this Blueprint delineates four objectives. Each objective has an associated set of recommendations that are designed to achieve the objective. Objective 1: Promote positive child and youth development Objective 2: Ensure supported and functioning families Objective 3: Foster safe and vibrant neighborhoods Objective 4: Ensure program and government effectiveness
