CENTER FOR VIOLENCE PREVENTION
The mission of the Center for Violence Prevention (CVP) at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, formerly known as the Violence Prevention Initiative, is to reduce the exposure to and impact of violence among children, teens, and families.
The healing journey is not a linear one; you may start, stop, and then start again. Your path is YOURS — no matter where you enter or exit, be encouraged in knowing that you’ve made it this far, and there are resources to keep you going.

Why violence matters to public health? Violence has enormous health and social consequences. Violence results in many deaths every day, particularly among young men and boys. Beyond these deaths, many more men, women, boys and girls suffer from injuries, disability and ill-health as the result of violence.
