Research & Evaluation of Chicago CRED

To this end, CRED has developed an intervention that combines elements from street outreach, life coaching, and job training and readiness programs into a single-phased intervention that deals with some of the highest-risk individuals involved in gang and gun violence in Chicago. The N3 evaluation will evaluate the program’s impact through longitudinal interviews with participants, observations of CRED’s outreach activities, and rigorous quantitative analyses of public safety and CRED programmatic data.

To this end, CRED has developed an intervention that combines elements from street outreach, life coaching, and job training and readiness programs into a single phased intervention that deals with some of the highest-risk individuals involved in gang and gun violence in Chicago.

Through longitudinal interviews with participants, observations of CRED’s outreach activities, and rigorous quantitative analyses of public safety and CRED programmatic data, the N3 evaluation will evaluate the program’s impact on three key outcomes:

  1. Changes in levels of violence and victimizations
  2. Educational and employment outcomes
  3. General process-related outcomes and experiences of participants.
