Community Response Initiative (CRI) - (Formally the Child Response Initiative)
The Community Response Initiative (CRI) is a trauma-informed, culturally-competent, and comprehensive coordinated community response for victims and their families. CRI's mission is to support children, families, and adults toward safety and wellness.
In 2008, a group of people came together because they wanted to make a difference. Co-founders Lindy Beauregard and Dr. Kelly Graves expanded the Greensboro CRI into what it is today. CRI shares many of its tenets in the Child Development-Community Policing (CD-CP) program model (Marans, Murphy, &, Berkowitz, 2002), but was uniquely adapted to respond to the needs of the community. The purpose of CRI is to provide community-based, coordinated services delivered within a trauma-informed framework.
