Abstract:

Exposure to community violence is associated with higher rates of depression, fear of victimization, perceived need for self-protection through weapons carrying or gang affiliations, hopelessness, and adult withdrawal from public spaces (Bingenheimer, Brennan, & Earls, 2005; Gorman-Smith, Henry, & Tolan, 2004; Wilkinson, 2003; 2007; Wilkinson & Carr, 2008). Neighborhoods high in collective efficacy experience significantly lower rates of violent crime (Sampson, Raudenbush, & Earls, 1997; Browning, Feinberg, & Deitz, 2004; Sharkey, 2006). While collaborative community partnerships have the potential to promote lasting positive change, there are numerous challenges to partnerships and evaluating outcomes they produce (Rosenbaum, 2002). The project links OSU researchers with existing collaborative groups organized around neighborhood safety and youth violence prevention on the Near-East side of Columbus, Ohio. It is designed to (re)invigorate community capacity through an assessment of collaborative partnerships and processes operating in the Near-East and to create an accessible knowledge/resource center for community members. The research team achieved a 91% response rate from agencies serving this area. Preliminary analysis suggests that agencies collaborate with an average of 8 other agencies. Our presentation will include respondents’ evaluations of existing violence prevention efforts, suggestions for strengthening collaborations, and an assessment of agencies’ partnership needs.
