Healing Hurt People

Healing Hurt People (HHP) is a hospital and community-based violence intervention program that provides an integrated care model of trauma-focused healing services (therapy, supportive case management, and peer services) to victims of violent injury (stabbings, shootings, and assaults) between the ages of 8 and 35, as well as to those who may have been a witness to such violence. HHP employs a trauma-informed approach that considers the trauma and adversity that clients have experienced and recognizes that addressing these issues is critical to breaking the cycle of violence and supporting individuals in moving towards healing. Since 2007, HHP has been the cornerstone program of Drexel's Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice, whose mission is to decrease violence and trauma through public health policy, practice research and training.
