Homewood Campus
Behavioral Health Crisis Support Team

In response to the concern for the safety and well-being of our community and the desire to complement campus safety and security’s response to behavioral health crises, Johns Hopkins University is developing a behavioral health crisis support team to serve our students, faculty, and staff and non-affiliate community members in and around our Baltimore campuses.

Innovation Fund for Community Safety

Johns Hopkins University has created the JHU Innovation Fund for Community Safety, a four-year, $6 million commitment to support innovative, community-led programs designed to curb violence. The fund, which builds on the university’s longstanding commitment to helping to reduce violent crime in Baltimore, will support both new programs and the expansion of existing ones.
