U.S. Crisis Care

Preserving a ray of hope in the darkest hours of people's lives

aka USCC   |   Sacramento, CA   |  www.crisiscare.us

Mission

On the average day in the U.S., about 400 people die from SIDS, accidents, suicides and other sudden, unexpected causes, traumatizing a wide circle of family and friends. Survivors receiving effective, on-scene practical and emotional support are more likely to rebuild healthy, fulfilling lives, rather than spiraling down into despair, substance abuse, school failure, unemployment, family breakup, and other problems. U.S. Crisis Care supports the development and operation of community crisis care programs, through which volunteers respond to police and fire department requests to offer survivors such on-scene support.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

U.S. Crisis Care's mission is to help people impacted by personal tragedies to rebuild healthy, fulfilling, productive lives. We do this by supporting local programs whose volunteers provide on-scene practical and emotional support to survivors affected by suicides, infant deaths, fatal heart attacks and other sudden losses. Our specific goals include:
> developing crisis care programs in communities that had not previously offered this service
> increasing awareness of local crisis care programs among the public safety officials who can activate them
> improving volunteer response times

Our primary strategies for accomplishing these objectives include:
> educating public safety officials, other municipal officials, and community leaders about the benefits of providing on-scene practical and emotional support to bereaved survivors
> providing technical assistance and resources to local communities that are developing community crisis care programs
> assisting local programs to recruit diverse and qualified volunteers through public outreach campaigns
> implementing best practices to improve program administrative efficiencies, so that program personnel can devote more time to promoting their programs to public safety officials
> streamlining activation systems to ensure that qualified volunteers arrive on scene as rapidly as possible

U.S. Crisis Care formed in 2003 through a collaboration among the U.S. Department of Justice and several of the largest and most successful crisis programs around the western states. Through U.S. Crisis Care's independent local programs work together to develop and share resources and best practices. This enables them to serve as many bereaved survivors as effectively as possible.

Since its founding, U.S. Crisis Care has:
> assisted many programs to recruit more and more diverse volunteer applications
> published a national standard volunteer training curriculum, based on best practices among successful local programs
> provided nationally qualified trainers for local programs' volunteer training academies
> published crisis care program certification standards
> developed a fully integrated, state-of-the-art, online crisis care program administration system
> provided program development technical assistance to several municipalities

In the near term, we intend to achieve the following objectives:
> update the standard volunteer training curriculum to incorporate multi-site collaboration technology
> increase sharing of trainers among local programs
> conduct voluntary local program audits to certify more programs
> roll out the online program administration system to additional programs
> assist additional local communities to develop crisis care programs
