HEALING HURT PEOPLE CHICAGO

Helping Youth Heal

Healing Hurt People Chicago (HHPC) helps violently injured people heal emotionally and physically. When injured people enter the hospital, HHPC supports these individuals and their loved ones to navigate the medical journey and take the necessary steps to successfully re-enter their community. HHPC is a hospital-based, advocacy program for violence recovery that provides crisis intervention, mental health care, medical advocacy, practical support, and a community where people who have been violently injured can heal and thrive.

Our Investment

With a $250,000 investment from Chicago Beyond, HHPC was able to expand services and support more individuals with intensive case management and other services. HHPC now serves 700+ patients each year, and their program is embedded within the Stroger Hospital trauma department at Cook County Health.
