Our scope of services includes a 24�-hour crisis line, counseling, advocacy, accompaniment, rape and other violence prevention education in schools, and outreach to under�s-erved populations. It is our strong belief that violence and abuse must be examined on an individual level (e.g., sexual abuse, rape) as well as a collective level (e.g., genocide, war), and in the context of societal inequities (e.g., sexism, racism, heterosexism). We also believe that violent behaviors by individuals as well as societal inequities perpetrated on a collective level are, at their core, about unhealed effects of trauma and ensuing cycles of violence. We seek candidates who share our vision and philosophy including core beliefs such as (1) we all have been affected by violence and inequities; (2) healing from the effects of those experiences is a life�-long process; and (3) commitment to ones healing is a key to our well�-being, effective relationships with others, a healthy and equitable work environment, and meaningful political change. RTS Staff, Associates, Trauma Counselors and Therapists work together to provide a variety of support services to child, adolescent and adult survivors of sexual violence in particular, as well as all forms of direct and indirect trauma from violence and abuse.
