This volume represents the first step in an effort to build a central repository of promising anti-violence programs. Part of a cooperative venture in the federal government, this resource guide draws on information stored in more than 30 Federal clearinghouses and resource centers. Included here are programs developed by government agencies, private foundations, religious and fraternal associations, and others. This volume presents about 600 specific programs now operating throughout the United States. The scope of these efforts is wide--ranging from parent education and preschool programs to interventions for high-risk adolescents and alternative sanctions for youthful offenders. Highlighted throughout the document are key details about each program: project type, start-up date, program description, target population and setting, information about evaluation, budgets, and contact persons who can answer specific questions. The programs are presented in five sections: (1) Community Violence; (2) Youth Violence; (3) Family Violence; (4) Substance Abuse; and (5) Victims. Most of the programs address prevention, but many also target enforcement, and treatment and rehabilitation. The programs are indexed by title, subject, location, and funding sources. (RJM)
