Joshua Latham from Healing Hurt People, a hospital-based violence intervention program at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, works around the clock with victims of shootings, stabbings and assaults to offer the tools they need to end the cycle of violence.

Healing Hurt People just celebrated their one year anniversary and has had measurable results; none of the young men involved in the program have retaliated or been reinjured.
