City Announces Plan To Address Youth Violence
Posted by Shelby Stiner on Jun 20, 2013 - 3:50:04 PM

SANTA MONICA—After the shooting at Santa Monica College, Santa Monica city and school officials have drafted a new action plan aimed at solving the youth and family violence problem.

The plan will work through the Cradle to Career group on a collective impact approach that focuses on the root causes of youth violence, specifically on mental health services and family support.

“As we learn more about the June 7th shooting, it’s clear that addressing complex issues of mental health and domestic violence should be top priorities,” said Julie Rusk, Assistant Director of Community & Cultural Services, in a press release.

Although it has not been announced what changes the city will be making or the cost of the changes, the first steps of the plan have taken place such as the opening of the Community Connections & Support Center at Virginia Avenue Park. At the center, people can receive counseling from local clergy or mental health professionals.

Officials also announced the formation of A Youth & Family Violence Fund which will help jumpstart the actions the city wants to take with the new plan. Cradle to Career indicated on the Santa Monica Youth Wellbeing website that over the next 30 days it will be working on a strategy to work closer with youth and families.
