CP4P: COMMUNITIES PARTNERING 4 PEACE
MPI Behavioral Health Services
Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P), convened by Metropolitan Family Services, is a framework that provides a comprehensive, long-term approach to reducing violence and gang activity among the individuals and communities it serves.
Its work is rooted in nonviolence, trauma-informed care, hyper-local collaboration and restorative justice practices.
CP4P features nine of Chicago’s leading outreach organizations who have combined their expertise to jointly impact nine Chicago communities most affected by gun violence. This marks the first time that such efforts have been locally implemented on such a broad level.
The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) implemented the Safe Passage program with the goal to provide safer conditions for students while walking to and from school for classes, extracurricular activities, and after school programs. The Community Watcher is responsible for monitoring and ensuring the safety of children at designated schools. Target Area currently serves 13 schools and employs over 100 Chicago residents for the Safe Passage program.
