Given the power of partnerships, there is untapped potential for community development, early childhood, and violence prevention practitioners to work together toward shared goals. Although these three sectors have distinct approaches, their mandate and desired outcomes intersect. As part of the national project, Cradle to Community: A Focus on Community Safety and Healthy Child Development funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this brief, Multiplying Outcomes in Place-Based Initiatives: How Community Safety & Early Childhood Development Practitioners Can Collaborate with Community Development, from Prevention Institute shares key findings and answers questions on what the community development sector does and how it relates to early childhood and violence prevention.

Multisector collaboration can help expand available resources, strategies, and capabilities to achieve outcomes that would be difficult to accomplish alone. This brief builds on the overlap between the community development, early childhood, and violence prevention sectors and puts forth what multisector collaboration could look like between the three sectors, including challenges, tips, potential shared outcomes, partner strengths, and examples of local joint strategies.

Findings in this brief can be used to support collaborations across community development, early childhood, and violence prevention sectors. Access the research brief and information about the Cradle to Community Project on Prevention Institute’s website.

For many of us, the collective trauma of COVID-19 and racial injustice, including the white supremacist, anti-Black murders in Buffalo on May 14th, has greatly impacted our mental health and wellness. Our collective grief, pain, and anger can feel at times like too much to bear. But we know that just as all forms of violence are interconnected, so too must be our response to it. This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights the role of community connection in promoting mental well-being. Resources feature strategies for trauma-informed community building, community care, and healing justice.
