The DV Community Advocate works in Seattle with adult survivors of domestic violence (DV) on an empowerment model to provide an array of trauma-informed services, such as crisis response, basic needs assistance, safety planning, emotional support, financial assistance, housing search and placement, and case-management services. Services to be provided by this position will focus particularly in assisting homeless survivor households to become rapidly re-housed in permanent housing with financial assistance and supportive services to promote long term housing stability. Given this, the advocate will at times provide mobile advocacy services by driving to meet with and/or accompany clients to various locations throughout Seattle and King County. Driving in the employee’s own vehicle is required with reimbursement provided for mileage, parking and cellphone use.
