A Multi-Sector Approach to Preventing Violence

Email Print


There is growing recognition that preventing violence means engaging many sectors, but collaboration can be difficult. This publication outlines the benefits and challenges of multi-sector collaboration, and illustrates how the Collaboration Multiplier tool can help with an example out of Houston. It features a Collaboration Multiplier grid with information about seven public sectors, as well as a sample analysis for how community services, the economic sector, schools and public health might work together to prevent violence.

Developed with funding from The Kresge Foundation, "A Multi-Sector Approach to Preventing Violence" is a companion document for a full-length guide that clarifies the roles and contributions of 10 sectors and 12 municipal departments.
