The Violence Prevention Program (VPP) was developed to strengthen the hospital’s ability to identify and assist patients who are survivors of interpersonal violence.
Our mission is to:
- Identify patients and staff impacted by domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual assault
- Respond with culturally competent and trauma-informed care, support and referrals through an extensive network of community-based partner organizations.
- Prevent these forms of violence through education, training, awareness raising and advocacy
