Operation SNUG

Operation SNUG (guns spelled backwards) is a statewide implementation of the Cure Violence model in New York. SNUG is run out of New York’s Department of Criminal Justice Services and is implemented in nine cities: Albany, Buffalo, Mt. Vernon, Nassau County, New York City, Rochester, Syracuse, Troy and Yonkers.

In August, 2014, New York City Mayor DeBlasio announced an additional $12.7 million in funding to create almost a dozen new Cure Violence partner sites in high risk neighborhoods and boroughs throughout NYC.  The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is responsible for opening the additional sites and is working closely with Cure Violence staff to train and hire staff.  The new sites are expected to be operational in 2015.

NOTE: While many examples of successful programs exist, successful adaptations of programs in new communities are challenging because new programs experience different issues and contexts. Evidence has proven that adaptations of the Cure Violence Health Model that work closely with Cure Violence as an organization ensure fidelity to the health approach, and are thus more successful.
