Following a traumatic event, people often feel helpless, confused, and experience emotional shock. They are confronted with a situation for which they are totally unprepared. Often there is no one available in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy to guide the victims through these difficult hours. The TIP volunteer provides this necessary temporary support until persons involved in the crisis are able to depend on family, friends, neighbors, and others.

TIP volunteers are always available. They are called by authorized police officers, firefighters, paramedics and hospital personnel to assist:

  • Family members of SIDS victims.
  • Family members and friends following a natural, accidental, or unexpected death.
  • Family members of a person who has committed suicide.
  • Victims of fire.
  • Persons involved in automobile accidents.
  • Disoriented or lonely older persons.
  • Persons who are distraught and seeking immediate support.
