About Our Auction
The Mission of TIP- A child is told her mother died. A father learns that his daughter was killed by a drunk driver. A family outing ends in a drowning. Grandpa dies of cancer. You arrive home from a long day at work to see your house in flames.
Tragedies devastate people. What do you do? Who do you call? No one is prepared for this! People feel alone and unable to make decisions. Emergency workers are often too busy with the scene, the report and investigation to tend to the emotional and practical needs of survivors. TIP is called as the designated caregiver at the scene, taking pressure off emergency workers.
We provide emotional first aid and practical support to ease the immediate suffering of survivors to facilitate their long term recovery. Citizens are trained as volunteer TIP responders to be on-call in shifts on a 24/7/365 day basis. TIP is sought by police officers, firefighters, paramedics, deputy coroners and hospital personnel when they need help.
Volunteers respond to support survivors of all types of tragedy including deaths, suicides, auto accidents, drownings, infant deaths, house fires and victims of crimes. Trauma Intervention Programs of Yuba-Sutter Counties is a nonprofit 501 c (3) tax exempt organization. Services are provided to victims and their families free of charge. Our work is made possible through grants, gifts from individuals and businesses, foundations, service clubs and through fund raising efforts.
Your gifts enable us to provide the supportive and life enhancing services our clients need. Research shows that the sooner people get emotional support, the better the grief and recovery process goes. With your investment in TIP we can continue to provide the essential services to children, adults and families who turn to us during some of the most frightening times of their lives.
