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. At CRED, we take a multifaceted approach to reducing gun violence, one proven to work in other cities. We work directly with the individuals who are most likely to carry a gun or get shot, and in the communities where gun violence is most concentrated.

At a recent gathering of violence prevention organizations, Arne Duncan said “We have built something really special in Chicago–a violence prevention network serving dozens of neighborhoods across the city. The architecture is in place. Now, we need to take this to scale,”

Your gift is invaluable in furthering our goal and we appreciate your support!
