NCCEV is a resource center for anyone seeking information about the effects of violence on children and the initiatives designed to address this problem. It is also a provider of training, technical assistance, and consultation to a variety of collaborative community programs across the country. NCCEV is supported by grants from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, US Department of Justice; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration; and the US Department of Education.
