At CRED, we take a multifaceted approach to reducing gun violence, one proven to work in other cities. To create lasting change we work directly with the individuals who are most likely to carry a gun or get shot, and with the communities where gun violence is most concentrated. Through Street Outreach, Coaching & Counseling, Workforce Development, and Advocacy & Prevention we lift young men and women, and rally neighborhoods to dramatically rewrite the story of gun violence in Chicago.
Chicago CRED’s sole mission is to lower gun violence in the City of Chicago through its own efforts and by supporting other organizations that assist Chicago CRED in achieving that mission. Your support will be invaluable in terms of furthering our goal.
