Employment

Domestic abuse, intimate partner violence, homelessness, and related traumas are distressing and taxing experiences that can have long lasting effects on anyone. Please reflect on your personal circumstances regarding your ability to work effectively in what can be a triggering and traumatic environment. Also, please reflect on your systems and habits of self-care; before we can be effective advocates for our clients, our agency, and our community, we must each first be advocates for ourselves. If you need a little more time and space for your own personal healing, we encourage you to honor yourself, and to think about applying perhaps in the future. Otherwise, we look forward to hearing from you.
