Our Community Partners

The Wraparound program provides intensive case management with the goal of connecting and transitioning patients to services and natural supports located in their neighborhoods. Working closely with the community-based network of the Black Child Legacy Campaign (BCLC) partners, our Violence Intervention Specialists can ensure patients are connected with services that provide accessible and sustainable support during recovery and beyond.

Program Support

Funding for our program is provided through California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC), UC Davis Medical Center, and charitable donations.

  • The BSCC California Violence Intervention and Prevention (CalVIP) Grant Program was established in 2019 to “improve public health and safety by supporting effective violence reduction initiatives in communities that are disproportionately impacted by violence, particularly group-member involved homicides, shootings, and aggravated assaults.”
  • Donate to the Wraparound Program – Your donations to the Wraparound Program are used to assist violently injured youth with housing, transportation, food and essen tials of daily living.
