About TIP of Long Beach

TIP of Long Beach is a chapter of the Trauma Intervention Programs, Inc. (TIP), a national non-profit organization founded in 1985. TIP has 16 affiliates serving over 250 cities across the nation. In each Affiliate, citizen volunteers respond to traumatic incidents at the request of Police, Fire and Hospital personnel to support those who are emotionally traumatized.

TIP has received the prestigious Innovations Award in State and Local government from Harvard University and Ford Foundation, Crime Victim Service Award from the U.S. Justice Department, and the Governor's Victim Service Award from the State of California.

The Long Beach Chapter of TIP was founded in 2019. The Chapter receives support and guidance from a local Advisory Committee.

TIP is a group of specially trained volunteers who provide emotional aid and practical support to victims of traumatic events and their families in the first few hours following a tragedy. TIP Volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are called by police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and hospital personnel to assist family members and friends following a natural or unexpected death; victims of violent crime including rape, assault, robbery, or burglary; victims of fire; disoriented or lonely elderly persons; people involved in motor vehicle accidents; people who are distraught and seeking immediate support; and survivors of suicide.
