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.
