Our client is a non-profit organization whose mission is to break the cycle and heal the wounds of childhood sexual abuse by providing education, advocacy and support to adult survivors, loved ones, providers and the community. They’re ushering in the day when all survivors and their supporters have the resources they need to speak about, heal from and thrive beyond childhood sexual abuse trauma.
Our client’s organization has a 36-year history of providing qualified therapist referrals, therapist facilitated support groups and community and clinical education/outreach for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their loved ones. To date, their services have primarily been offered across the Front Range of Colorado, while they are needed in every community.
As childhood sexual abuse is an issue that affects 1 in 4 women, 1 in 6 men, or 1 in 5 adults from all backgrounds and social locations, their goal is to develop and scale their specialized programming to meet the needs of this diverse and far-reaching population in ways that complement, but do not duplicate, existing services in the field.
Can you deliver insight, direction and measurable results? Do you thrive in empowering team members to achieve organizational goals, while optimizing the client experience? If so, we are looking for you to join the team!
