The Paterson Healing Collective (PHC) is a hospital- based violence interventionprogram created by a multi- agency partnership that encompasses St. Joseph’sHospital, Reimagining Justice and the Health Coalition of Passaic County. It utilizes acommunity-based violence intervention strategy; operating from the framework that violence is a public health issue. PHC deploys Interventionists to mentor, provide referrals and victim services to those who are survivors of violence in the City of Paterson, NJ. PHC utilizes the strengths and connections of non-traditional, grassroots leaders (credible messengers who may have been justice involved, survivors of violence, former perpetrators of violence and community advocates) as mentors, supporting victims of violence between the ages of 12- 40 years old through a case management model.
