Children Exposed to Violence

Children are exposed to violence every day in their homes, schools, and communities. Such exposure can cause them significant physical, mental, and emotional harm with long-term effects that can last well into adulthood.  Exposure to violence can limit children's potential and increase their likelihood of becoming involved in the juvenile or criminal justice system.
