Work with a team of passionate advocates committed to creating a state where domestic and sexual violence are intolerable.
The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC) is nationally recognized by the federal Office for Violence Against Women and the Office for Victims of Crime as an expert organization supporting best practices in victim advocacy throughout Utah. UDVC’s member programs provide direct services (including emergency shelter, community outreach and education, victim advocacy and case management, legal and housing support) to adult and child victims of domestic and sexual violence throughout Utah. Our member programs also work extensively in partnership with a range of organizations to bridge the gap in victim services throughout our state, especially in rural and diverse communities.
The role of Outreach Coordinator II supports the expansion of UDVC’s outreach efforts, including the creation, implementation, administration and establishing cooperative efforts of UDVC’s Domestic Violence High Risk Teams (DVHRT) pilot program. Travel throughout the state of Utah is required, and a somewhat flexible work week is allowed with a partial work from home option.
Domestic Violence High Risk Teams (DVHRT) pilot program
The DVHRT Model framework is built on four fundamental strategies: Early identification of high-risk cases through the use of risk assessment; engagement of a multi-disciplinary team; ongoing monitoring and management of high-risk offenders; and victim services. The DVHRT creates individualized intervention plans that incorporate the entire domestic violence response system with the goals of increasing victim safety and holding offenders accountable. This new pilot program is currently in the beginning stages of implementation in 3 rural sites across the state.
The UDVC Outreach Coordinator II will help create, plan, implement and report on this new program by working closely with UDVC Member Programs, First Responders, and other Community Partners to focus on increasing survivor’s stabilization, reducing high risk factors & improving safety.
