The City of Philadelphia is seeking a full-time Gun Violence Intervention (GVI) Case Manager to provide day-to-day social services coordination and management support to the GVI Program. The National Network for Safe Communities’ GVI has repeatedly demonstrated that violence can be dramatically reduced when a partnership of community members, law enforcement, and social service providers directly engages with the small and active number of people involved in street groups. The program clearly communicates a moral message from community representatives that violence will not be tolerated; a law enforcement message that any future violence will be met with clear, predictable, and certain consequences; and an offer of help from social service providers for those who want it.
