A boy looks lost in a crowd. His face is turned to us while the crowd is turned away.

Over the past 14 years, the juvenile murder rate in Colorado has increased over 200% according to a recent article in Westword. Director of the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence, Beverly Kingston, believes intervention and prevention tactics provided through community programs can greatly reduce these incidences of violence. However, Kingston warns the community must do more to ensure children receive the support and care they need.
