How to Get Involved

You can be a supportive member of High Point Community Against Violence:

  • Understand that HPCAV’s Number One Goal, Purpose and Focus is a SAFE COMMUNITY for everyone.
  • Learn about our Violent Crime Reduction Strategy so you understand how we do what we do.
  • Attend a monthly meeting.  We meet the second Wednesday of every month at 8:30 a.m. at the High Point Police Department, 1009 Leonard Street in High Point.  You are welcome to come and listen, learn and ask questions about what we do, how we do it and why. Changes to the meeting time or location will be posted on our Facebook page.
  • Attend Call-ins.  There are 4 Violent Crime Task Force Call-ins each year and 2 to 4 Domestic Violence Call-ins.  You do not have to say or do anything.  Your PRESENCE adds to the “moral voice” of the community.  See our Events Page for Call-in dates.
  • Participate in neighborhood responses.  HPCAV volunteers team with Police Department officers and go door to door, handing out information and reassuring residents that crime is not going unnoticed!
  • Donate funds to assist clients who are working to change their lives.
  • Keep your neighborhood strong!  Be active in your neighborhood watch group or start a neighborhood watch in your area.
  • Use your skills and experiences to train our clients.  If you have the authority to hire, we would like to talk to you about our clients who would be quality candidates.
  • Keep up with what is going on via our Facebook page.  Share that information with others.

What do we do with donated funds?

Funds are used to assist individuals who have participated in a call-in or notification. Most funds are used to pay security deposits or first month’s rent, utility bills, books and material fees for school or other specific needs a client may have. There is a cap on the amount of money that may be spent on each client. Clients are always asked to repay at least a portion of the amount spent. Money does not go directly to the client, but to the housing company, the school, the utility company, etc. There is a limit (per client) and the financial need must be presented by the probation officer.
