Keystone Crisis Intervention Team
The concept of KCIT was created when a group of professionals from across the Commonwealth joined together to comprise the Crisis Response Organizational Subcommittee. This subcommittee is under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s (PCCD) Victim Services Advisory Committee (VSAC).
The VSAC was established in 1995 to ensure that the voices, needs and perspectives of all crime victims are considered in the development of services, standards, policies, funding priorities and outcomes. The VSAC identified the need to explore the creation of a statewide crisis response capability to communities affected by a crime that produces multiple victims.
The Crisis Response Organizational Subcommittee was formed and developed the concept of KCIT as one of the means to increase the statewide crisis response capability.
KCIT empowers local communities to support crime victims in their recovery from traumatic incidents by assessing the impact of the event on the community; developing an intervention plan; and providing crisis intervention by trained volunteer teams.
Vision statement: All victims throughout the Commonwealth will have access to timely, competent, and caring support by appropriately trained volunteers.
