Supporting Victims and Communities of Mass Violence Incidents


The American Hospital Association’s Hospitals Against Violence initiative is proud to partner with the National Mass Violence Victimization Resource Center (NMVVRC) to provide resources and support surrounding incidents of mass violence for the communities and patients served by our hospitals and health systems. Established in 2017 in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), NMVVRC strives to establish best practices to achieve a social understanding of mass violence upon which civic leaders, health care professionals, journalists, policy makers and victim assistance professionals can rely. 

The vision is to provide communities access to evidence-based information and resources needed to effectively prepare for and respond to mass violence incidents.
