  Hospital Based Intervention Overview

Culturally competent case managers provide 24/7 response to victims of violence at St. Francis Medical Center and Harbor UCLA Medical Center during a teachable moment in the hospital setting. In the months following a patientís release, they engage, assess, and link individuals to services such as education, counseling, employment, and victim services. TPI contracts with Southern California Crossroads to implement HBVI and to develop protocols to expand the model to other hospitals. TPI also co-convenes the Hospital Based Violence Prevention Consortium to improve collaboration and build a cohesive model to better serve communities.

  Street Outreach & Community Violence Intervention Services

Community intervention workers and ambassadors in the four TPI communities mediate conflicts, control rumors, stop retaliatory violence, ensure safe passages to and from schools and parks, promote peace in the community, and link youth and adults to social services, health services, and mental-health services. TPI is working in four unincorporated communities with the highest disparities in violence and other health and social indicators: Westmont West Athens, Willowbrook, Florence Firestone, and Unincorporated Compton.
