BRAVE at Erie County Medical Center
BRAVE (Buffalo Rising Against Violence at ECMC) is a HVIP (Hospital Based Violence Intervention Program) that provides in house advocacy to victims of violence. BRAVE advocates meet violently injured patients being treated in the Emergency Department (ED) who have been intentionally shot, stabbed and/ or injured. Patients are supported throughout their hospital course. BRAVE then collaborates with community partners to provide further case management in a collaborative effort to prevent community violence and to heal the individuals and communities most impacted.
