(COLUMBUS, Ohio) Tuesday January 31, 2017 — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that he is awarding more than $2.6 million in grants to create five Trauma Recovery Centers in Ohio that will provide crisis intervention to hospitalized traumatic violent crime victims.

Ohio will be just the second state in the nation with a network of Trauma Recovery Centers.

Attorney General DeWine made the announcement today at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, which is among the grant recipients.

“These Trauma Recovery Centers will fill a gap in connecting victims of crime to services, especially those within underserved, vulnerable populations that may face barriers in accessing or may not know how to access victim services,” said Attorney General DeWine. “This program will ensure that victims will not have to seek out support on their own, because help will immediately be brought to them.”
