Trauma and Emergency Care

New interventions to prevent violent injuries

With the help of Kohl’s Cares, we launched a new program designed to aid emotional recovery and help prevent recurrence of violent injuries among adolescents and young adults in Sacramento’s Oak Park area. Named “Wraparound,” the program features two intervention specialists who work to turn tragic circumstances into teachable moments for stabbing, gunshot and beating victims admitted to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment.

Kohl’s Cares awarded a $450,000 grant to launch and operate Wraparound, part of a larger Kohl’s Cares grant and a larger series of grant initiatives to reduce preventable pediatric injury in underserved communities.
