Communities Partnering 4 Peace

Community-based violence prevention solutions in Rogers Park and Uptown.

How CP4P Works:

CP4P is a comprehensive, community-based violence prevention model pioneered by Metropolitan Family Services. Understanding that effective solutions to community challenges requires residents’ active support and engagement, CP4P’s model puts the power in communities’ hands.

CP4P works directly with individuals at highest risk of shooting or being shot. We accomplish this by developing authentic, trusted relationships in communities, and by providing trauma-informed wraparound services. Our outreach workers are capable, skilled, and dedicated professionals who live and work in the communities they serve.

What We Do

CP4P ONE Northside’s violence prevention team is making a direct impact on those most effected by gun violence in Rogers Park and Uptown. We offer a series of comprehensive programs designed to intervene in gun violence as it happens, provide wraparound services, and build trust and communication within the communities to prevent future violence.
