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.
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.
Provide comprehensive case management, emotional support and advocacy services to survivors of domestic violence, within an agency framework that is trauma-informed, strength-based, relational, and empowering. The Domestic Violence Advocate can expect to serve a caseload of survivors who hold racially- and culturally-diverse identities. The advocate will also plan and facilitate groups, coordinate services with community providers and identify resources needed to meet the complex needs of survivors and their families.
Reporting to the Director of Prevention, Intervention, and Education, the Domestic Violence Advocate supports survivors of domestic violence living in the community, contributes to planning, implementation and evaluation of programs, and is responsible for other activities as assigned.
