Fathers Against Violence: National Survey on the Impacts of Violence in Communities

This survey is a critical tool in our collective efforts to assess and reduce violence in neighborhoods and communities across the United States. Your insights and experiences are invaluable in helping us identify key areas of concern, the effectiveness of current initiatives, and potential new strategies for enhancing safety protocols within our communities.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The questions cover a range of topics, including personal experiences with violence, the role of conflict resolution and educational programs, neighborhood safety, and the impact of community and parental involvement, particularly the role of fathers, in deterring violence.

Your responses will directly contribute to shaping future policies and programs to create safer opportunity zones where our citizens can thrive. We deeply appreciate your honest feedback and commitment to making a positive difference.

The EEG Foundation, Fathers Against Violence, and Applied Research Institute thank you for taking the time to contribute to this important cause.

There are 25 questions in this survey.
This survey is anonymous.

The record of your survey responses does not contain any identifying information about you, unless a specific survey question explicitly asked for it.

It is managed in a separate database and will only be updated to indicate whether you did (or did not) complete this survey.
