“The National Network for Youth (NN4Y) is dedicated to preventing and eradicating youth homelessness in America. We work in communities with youth who have experienced homelessness, service providers, and systems to help accelerate the community’s progress in ending homelessness and human trafficking among young people. Together, we envision a future in which all young people have a safe place to call home with endless opportunities to achieve their fullest potential.

Founded in 1976 by community-based youth service-providers committed to shaping public policy and community practices to keep youth in crisis out of juvenile detention and child welfare systems and instead receive comprehensive community-based services. NN4Y has evolved, but its core mission has remained unwavering—to transform systems so that no young person in America experiences homelessness.“

“The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) is a nationwide coalition of State Advisory Groups (SAGs), organizations, individuals, youth, and allies dedicated to preventing children and youth from becoming involved in the courts and upholding the highest standards of care when youth are charged with wrongdoing and enter the justice system. CJJ envisions a nation where fewer children are at risk of delinquency; and if they are at risk or involved with the justice system, they and their families receive every possible opportunity to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives. 

CJJ’s substantive areas of work include: 

Promoting evidence-informed policies and practices in delinquency reduction and prevention;

Educating the public and advising federal policymakers on state and local juvenile justice issues;

Assisting the states (including territories and the District of Columbia) in meeting the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act;

Improving racial/ethnic fairness, accessibility, and overall quality of community and court-based policies and practices; and

Linking national, state, and local advocates and organizations to pursue a common mission.”

At ICADV we know that violence is preventable, and every day we are working towards our vision of a world where all intimate relationships are non-violent and equitable. While want to eliminate violence, and we also want to promote safe, supported, and respectful relationships. We work for equity, across identities and multiple types of relationships, to ensure that our physical safety and emotional wellbeing are respected in our intimate relationships. At ICADV, we are working to make safe and respectful relationship behavior the easy and expected choice. To create relationships that are equitable and non-violent, we believe we have to fundamentally change the ways that we use power in relationships. We work to move from a model that celebrates competition and supports the use of power over others to one that celebrates shared, collaborative, and collective power.

With our prevention strategies, we start from the idea that what surrounds us, shapes us. We know from public health that our life experiences and the behaviors that we see modeled around us typically have a stronger influence on our behavior than facts and information that we have about a particular issue.

“The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) is the state planning agency for criminal justice, juvenile justice, traffic safety and victim services. The institute develops long-range strategies for the effective administration of Indiana’s criminal and juvenile justice systems and administers state and federal funds to carry out these strategies.

Through the use of evidence-based decision making, ICJI works to improve the efficiency of the criminal justice system, from call for service through post-conviction. The agency accomplishes this by bringing together key leaders from the criminal justice system at the state, local, and national levels to identify critical issues facing Indiana. The agency evaluates policies, programs and legislation designed to address these issues. ICJI is designated as the State Administering Agency for distribution of federal funds, and as the State Statistical Analysis Center for research.”
