Do you want to make a difference in your community and help our local first responders? Consider volunteering for the Southwest Riverside County Trauma Intervention Programs, Inc. (TIP).
TIP is a non-profit agency fueled by volunteers eager to provide a compassionate presence to victims and their families following a tragedy. The Southwest Riverside County chapter assisted more that 1,600 victims in 2020 alone. TIP works closely with Menifee first responders and is partnering with our Menifee Police Department.
This partnership would not be possible without the support of volunteers. These community volunteers are trained to provide emotional and practical support to victims of traumatic events. These modern-day good Samaritans are called by first responders during an emergency to help in a variety of important ways including providing comfort for families after the death or sudden illness of a loved one; supporting family members after the suicide of a loved one; helping emotionally traumatized victims of accidents; providing emotional and practical support to those who have been robbed, burglarized, or assaulted; and supporting those who are emotionally shaken by a crisis. TIP is currently recruiting volunteers to work with Menifee first responders, with volunteer training conveniently located at the Menifee Police Department. No experience is necessary.
TIP works closely with our Menifee Police Department to provide victims the resources and support they need after a traumatic event.
TIP holds between two and three volunteer training sessions per year, and the Menifee Police Department is proud to be the host location for the upcoming June session.
