Description

TIP of Western North Carolina is a chapter of Trauma Intervention Programs, Inc. (TIP), a national non-profit organization founded in 1985 in San Diego County. TIP has 15 affiliates serving in approximately 250 cities across the nation.

TIP has received the prestigious Innovations Award in State and Local government from Harvard University and Ford Foundation, Crime Victim Service Award from the U.S. Justice Department, and the Governor's Victim Service Award from the State of California.

The Western North Carolina chapter receives support and guidance from a local Advisory Committee.

Volunteers respond quickly to traumatic incidents at the request of law enforcement, fire and hospital personnel to offer emotional support and practical resources to survivors, family members, witnesses, friends and bystanders. Volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to support those in need following an unexpected death or injury, suicide, overdose, motor vehicle or other accident, fire, sexual assault or other tragic event - often on the worst day of someone's life.
