Join our team!

The Second Step is a community of survivors, advocates, and volunteers who foster the safety, stability, and well-being of those who have experienced domestic violence.

The Second Step is a community...

There’s a reason why our mission statement begins the way it does. It begins not with what we do, but with who we are. Think you might be a good fit? Check out current openings below.
