Community engagement is a key part of the Cure Violence Model and Violence Out is committed to incorporating neighborhood outreach into its activities. A range of services will be offered through the larger organization, such as economic assistance, educational supports and access to youth development programs, assistance for HIV/AIDS patients, and legal services.
