  • Vision

    To eliminate gang, social, street, sexual, child maltreatment, elder abuse, suicide, workplace, and family violence.

    Mission

    A Metropolitan Atlanta that lives without violence.

    Approach

    MAVPP supported activities (research, program design and implementation and evaluation) adhere to the public health approach to violence prevention. This approach is outlined by four steps: define the problem, identify risk and protective factors, develop and test prevention strategies, and assure widespread adoption.

    Current Strategy

    MAVPP's strategic plan includes measurable outcomes that directly relate to our mission to eliminate gang, social, street, sexual, child maltreatment, elder abuse, suicide, workplace, and family violence.
