Communities Partnering 4 Peace

Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P) is an innovative consortium of Chicago community violence intervention (CVI) organizations, convened by Metropolitan Peace Initiatives at Metropolitan Family Services, working towards a common goal of reducing victimization among individuals who are most likely to be involved in gun violence.

CORNERS' research and evaluation strategy focuses on assessing the following three key aspects related to CP4P's reach and impact:

  1. The ability of CP4P to reach and provide services to individuals most acutely impacted by and involved in gun violence
  2. The impact of CP4P services on individual-level participant outcomes, including involvement in gun violence and service use.
  3. CP4P's potential impact on gun violence at the community-level.

To understand participants' experiences, the evaluation also incorporates focus groups and semi-structured interviews co-facilitated by CP4P outreach staff.

This research partnership provides a unique opportunity to understand the continued development and evolution of collaborative CVI efforts in Chicago.
