TRC Technical Assistance Program

Violence is a public health issue that impacts individuals, families and communities.  

The UCSF Trauma Recovery Center (TRC) in San Francisco opened in 2001 to provide comprehensive, effective care to survivors of violent crime.  With many survivors facing significant barriers to getting the help they needed, the TRC model was developed to combine assertive outreach, clinical case management, and trauma-informed mental health services in order to remove barriers to care and reach survivors from underserved communities.  

TRC has been recognized locally and nationally as an effective, award-winning model of care.  In 2017, California Assembly Bill No. 1384 named the UCSF Trauma Recovery Center the “State Pilot Model” for California.  Replication of the model is now occurring at a national level, with more than 20 TRCs across the U.S.

The TRC Technical Assistance Program offers non-profit technical assistance to other centers interested in developing or applying the TRC Model Core Elements.  Our services include consultation, tailored workshops, and practical tools to help centers strengthen their capacity to provide high quality, comprehensive services to survivors of violent crime.

The UCSF TRC Manual is available as a resource for other centers or anyone interested in exploring the model. The Manual is available as a free download here.  Print copies are available for purchase here.
