Welcome to Northwest Florida TIP!
Our Mission Statement: To provide immediate, on scene emotional aid and practical support to traumatized victims and victims' survivors in the first few hours following a traumatic event.
Trauma Intervention Programs, Inc. (TIP, Inc.) is a national non-profit organization founded in 1985. TIP, Inc. establishes and operates TIP Chapters across the nation. In each Chapter, citizen volunteers provide support to emotionally traumatized citizens immediately after tragedy strikes.
Hospital personnel, police officers, firefighters, and paramedics call for TIP volunteer assistance on a 24-hour, 365-day a year basis. Volunteers assist family members following natural or unexpected deaths; victims of crime; disoriented or lonely older persons; victims of vehicle accidents; family members after a suicide; and anyone emotionally traumatized by a crisis event.
In 2012, TIP of NW Florida began an affiliation with Pensacola International Airport to assist families traveling through the terminal during the difficult time following the loss of a military service member. We are honored to provide our service to these very deserving families. Pensacola International Airport provides unsurpassed care and compassion to these military families and we are proud to join them in making a difficult journey as smooth as possible. Our active and retired military members are vital to Northwest Florida and we thank them for their service and sacrifice.
