A hospital based program providing the opportunity for victims of stabbings and gunshot injuries, with the assistance of case workers and other community resources, to identify and address the factors in their lives that have put them at risk for violence.
It is an opportunity to turn their lives around and make a change. Participants receive hospital-linked violence intervention and community wraparound case management services, including mental health support and training in nonviolent conflict resolution for participants and family members. By connecting gunshot victims to case managers and peer support specialists who aide in the process of healing, obtaining employment, and achieving educational goals, Pivot to Peace has successfully reduced injury recidivism in 95% of its participants.
The Pivot to Peace program is a collaboration between University of Louisville Hospital and the Peace Education program.
