Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic joins anti-violence collaboration

December 1, 2023

Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic and The Lincoln Center for Family and Youth have formed a collaboration to implement the Violence Intervention and Prevention Program.

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has provided a $2.5 million grant for the program.

The violence prevention initiative recently started at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, Pennsylvania, and will expand to Nazareth Hospital in Philadelphia and St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.

The program provides resources to those affected by violence, reducing traumatic stress and involvement in future violence and creating safer communities. It attempts to do so by breaking the cycle of violence.
