Wyckoff Heights Medical Center - Violence Intervention and Treatment Program (VITP)


The Violence Intervention and Treatment Program (VITP) at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center (WHMC) serves clients who are primary or secondary victims of domestic violence, sexual assault/rape or other crime. Referrals are received from hospital departments/clinical services, individuals within the community, or other community service providers. All services are free and confidential regardless of sex, gender expression or immigration status. The program has Rape Crisis Advocate on call service to assist in the Emergency Department during the evenings, weekends and holidays. These advocates provide emotional support, advocacy, information and assistance to the victim (age 12 and above) in the Emergency Department. VITP also offers free trainings on sexual misconduct and bystander intervention to colleges and graduate schools. We also provide technical assistance for colleges and graduate schools interested in implementing or strengthening their violence prevention programs on campus.
