Port City United will work collaboratively with individuals, students, families, and community-based organizations to help address the underlying issues of community violence. PCU’s mediation and outreach programs are built from an evidence-based Cure Violence Global model, but is locally-developed and designed for our community.
Mediation Specialists will engage within neighborhoods, meeting people where they are to build trust and mediate conflict in an effort to stop violence before it starts.
Outreach Specialists will provide case management to individuals and families, connections to needed resources, and coordinate special activities aimed at preventing youth and gang violence. The team will work to connect people to services in an effort to provide the right access to the resources they need, reduce poverty, and empower individuals.
Port City United is committed to building relationships, with the help of our community. We’re not here to police. We’re here to provide.
