Drexel Helping Violence Victims to Expand Across Philadelphia Hospitals

Healing Hurt People, a trauma-informed hospital-based violence intervention program developed at Drexel University’s Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice in the School of Public Health and College of Medicine, is expanding its reach at an unprecedented city-wide level in Philadelphia. Efforts are underway to offer the program soon at Temple University Hospital in North Philadelphia, with further expansion planned for Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania later in 2015-2016. The program currently operates in partnership with the emergency departments of Hahnemann University Hospital and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Healing Hurt People has previously been replicated at two hospitals in Chicago and one in Portland, Oregon, with a second Portland site under development.
