The Pew Charitable Trusts has awarded $4.25 million to four Philadelphia nonprofits working to close opportunity gaps and address the growing impact of violence on local residents. Three of the awardees are hospital programs that will participate in a citywide collaborative hosted by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to share resources, identify best practices and help develop data-sharing processes that will increase the evidence for hospital-based violence intervention services. Temple University Hospital (TUH) received a venture grant of $250,000 over two years to support its Trauma Victim Support Advocates program. The Philadelphia Tribune interviewed Scott Charles, Trauma Outreach Manager at TUH, about the Trauma Victim Support Advocates Program and receiving the venture grant. He shared that TUH will use the Pew grant to add professionals such as a job placement specialist, a social worker, a psychologist and a case manager to its trauma team.
