Scientific Evaluations

In today’s data driven world, communities demand evidence-based program that have been proven successful through rigorous, independent, scientific evaluations.  And while there are many programs that have a successful evaluation in their original site, very few have successfully replicated in new communities. The Cure Violence Health Model has been proven successful by three independent evaluations in three unique cities that have each shown large statistically significant reductions in violence due to the program.  And many more evaluations are currently underway, several due out this year.
