Violence Intervention Program

The Violence Intervention Program at LAC+USC Medical Center evaluates and treats victims of family violence and sexual assault. The program serves as a county-wide resource for cases of suspected child abuse and neglect, sexual assault, domestic violence, elder abuse/neglect, and dependent adult abuse/neglect. A primary care clinic for foster care children, called the Community-Based Assessment and Treatment Center, is the program's newest addition and opened in 2004. VIP projects also include the Everychild Foundation Center for the Vulnerable Child, Sexual Assault Center, 24-Hour Domestic Violence Response Team, Adult Protection Team and VIP Community Mental Health Center. The VIP CMHC Mentoring and Tutoring Project is funded in part by a USC Neighborhood Outreach grant.
