Who We Are

Our Fiscal Partner: Public Health Advocacy Institute

In 2015, Violence Transformed transitioned its fiscal agency from the Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) to the public nonprofit Public Health Advocacy Institute (PHAI) at Northeastern University in Boston. PHAI now serves as our private-non-profit fiscal agent and as our primary organizational sponsor. The move not only brings Violence Transformed closer to many of its partnering organizations in Boston, but also allows us to emphasize the contribution being made by the arts to the public health and well-being of individuals, families and communities at greatest risk of violence.
