The Kansas City No Violence Alliance
What is KC NoVA ?
The Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA) Governing Board, a coalition of key law enforcement and Kansas City leaders, including ArtsTech as our fiscal sponsor, goal is to reduce violence amongst our most hardened offenders and sustain the new violent crime reduction project in Kansas City’s urban core. KC NoVA began its operation in 2013, using a well-established, evidence-based method known as “focused deterrence” to reduce violent crime, including homicides. The KC NoVA effort to help persons close to being involved in violence, as either a suspect or a victim is a priority. The goal is to change their course away from violence or prison.
As the KC NoVA fiscal sponsor, ArtsTech employs four (4) client advocates as the social services team. Employees are housed at Seton Center, a local nonprofit organization located at 23rd and South Benton.
