Aim4Peace seeks to reduce violence-related injury re-admissions by providing antiviolence coaching and counseling to recovering victims of violent assault. A team of Hospital Responders trained in antiviolence coaching and conflict resolution support survivors of violence navigate stress, trauma, and conflict. Hospital Responders will also assess the safety of clients and work with partner organizations to help clients relocate to safer places when needed. The Hospital Response Team works to connect survivors of violence with wraparound services and assist clients in setting goals so that they have the support needed to live peaceful and prosperous lives.

The project includes $30,000 as a sub-award to Ad Hoc Group Against Crime to assist victims of violent assaults that are injured at or near their homes to relocate post-discharge permanently or temporarily.
