TIP Services During COVID
In order to maintain the safety of our volunteers and those we serve, the TIP program will be providing telephone service only until it is safe to resume normal operations.
We have developed a helpful resource guide that includes useful information in the aftermath of tragedy.
The Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) is a group of highly trained volunteers who provide emotional and practical support to survivors of traumatic events and their families within the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event.
A call might involve an elderly woman suddenly faced with the death of her spouse, a family that has lost its home to a fire, or a parent anxiously awaiting news about an injured child. In all these and many other different situations, TIP provides emotional first aid and support.
TIP of Portland, Maine, was established in 2004, in partnership with TIP National and the Junior League of Portland, Maine, and is proud to partner with a range of first responder teams in the greater Portland area/across Cumberland county.
Volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
