Trauma from Violence & Crime

Connect to Support

Give an Hour provides culturally responsive, evidence-based programming for people who have experienced humanmade trauma due to violence and crime.

There is no question that mass violence is horrific – whether the result is death or injury or the impact is direct or indirect. Helping this group of trauma survivors is critical to the overall mental health of our nation and Give an Hour is ready to assist those who are affected. 

Mass violence is defined in multiple ways by various entities. The U.S. experiences more mass gun violence incidents than any other country in the world and states reported that guns were used in 82% of multiple-victim incidents; thus, in the United States, mass violence is often synonymous with crimes committed through gun violence.

Interpersonal violence is a pervasive public health issue impacting individuals, families and entire communities and exposure to it increases the risk of emotional, behavioral and physical health problems. The World Health Organization’s Global Health Estimates indicate that approximately 1.4 million people died in 2011 as a result of violence. Of those deaths, 35.3%, or 504,587, were due to interpersonal violence. 

Give an Hour provides services for those impacted by this type of violence, which is defined as the intentional use of physical force or power against a person or group of people by an individual or small group of individuals. The people involved do not need to be in an intimate relationship and the violent act can be physical, sexual or psychological.
