The advocate will work in our Safer Futures Program—a collaboration between HAVEN and healthcare providers in Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam and Wheeler Counties and may be out-stationed for a portion of working hours at healthcare clinics and/or offices. This candidate will be working with a specific population of teens and young mothers pregnant and parenting, as well as working directly with the prevention program when English/Spanish Advocacy services are needed for youth. A healthcare or public health education/background would be preferred.
Grounded in social justice and the movement to end violence against women, HAVEN is a social service agency serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, teen dating violence, stalking, and human trafficking. Located in The Dalles along the scenic Columbia River, HAVEN from Domestic & Sexual Violence prioritizes work/life balance for its employees, emphasizing self-care and trauma-informed modes of practice for both staff and those HAVEN serves. While the organization began in 1981 in the form of a 24 hour crisis-line and network of volunteers to support victims, HAVEN is now a distinguished anti-violence agency with innovative programming to serve survivors of violence from a social-ecological framework that addresses all aspects of survivors’ lives and works to support survivors in their healing journeys.
