Violence Prevention Program

The Joliet Township Government has received a substantial grant to implement Violence Prevention Programming along with short term trauma-based intervention. Joliet has been identified as an area of need due to the instances of gun violence that impact the area and its residents. The program will consist of outreach, trained mental health staff, victim advocacy, and case management services, all aimed at reducing gun violence. The violence program hopes to add this program to the toolbox of programs that will aim to serve the township. The program will attempt to actively work with Joliet’s first responders who already protect and serve our community.
