Clackamas Women’s Services (CWS) was incorporated in 1985 as Clackamas County’s first shelter for women and children escaping family violence and domestic abuse. CWS’ service delivery framework is built on trauma- informed best practices that promote safety and self-determination. Our vision is to live in a society that no longer tolerates domestic and sexual violence, but rather thrives on mutual respect.
CWS offers comprehensive, responsive solutions for adults and children impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, the sex industry, and elder abuse. Through our confidential emergency shelter, our rural outreach office and A Safe Place Family Justice Center, CWS coordinates services with other public and private agencies in order to best serve survivors seeking help. Participants in our programs receive no-cost services by highly trained staff.
The Youth Advocate will focus on providing individual, group and family services to youth survivors of domestic and sexual violence, dating violence, sexual assault or exploitation and youth exposed to domestic and sexual violence in our region. This position will be part of the Children’s Program at CWS and stationed at the A Safe Place Family Justice Center with mobile capacities to meet with youth and families throughout the county at schools, social service agencies, medical/forensic settings, etc.
