The goal of Philadelphia CeaseFire is to reduce the level of violence, particularly shootings & homicides, by replicating the Cure Violence model within selected neighborhoods in the 22nd and 39th Police Districts of Philadelphia. Philadelphia Ceasefire will utilize the five core components of the Chicago model: 1) Community Mobilizations 2) Youth Outreach 3) Faith-Based Leader Involvement 4) Police Department Participation 5) Public Education. The program's goals replicate those of the Chicago CeaseFire evidence based program which is an initiative of the Chicago Project for Violence Prevention.
