San Diego County CA— When trauma hits it does not discriminate. It can come in a blink of an eye and can turn your life around like a tornado in a matter of seconds. Most do not know the steps to move forwardfrom a crisis event, but there are people with hearts two sizes too big who volunteer to be bythe side of victims.
In collaboration with the emergency response system, Trauma Intervention Programs of San Diego (TIP) provides immediate crisis intervention following a tragedy. TIP volunteers add another dimension to the emergency system compassionate support. Specially trained volunteers provide care and support to citizens who have been traumatized or are in a state of crisis providing service 365 days a year.
Imagine witnessing a fatal car accident, or having a loved one unexpectedly die; TIP volunteers will be requested by law enforcement or fire department to be your side to help process what has impacted you and help you with the next steps.
Serving over 4000 citizens last year proves the demand is there, the need is crucial. TIP is seeking compassionate individuals who have an aspiration to give back to their community.
Consider being a TIP volunteer today and sign up for our next training academy in October 2016.
