Victim Advocate - Part Time (Tooele Site)

Pathways Victim Services Center-South Valley Services (SVS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide options to anyone who has experienced domestic violence and sexual assault. We provide case management, prevention, and shelter to help individuals and families build lives free from violence. Our programs aim to empower individuals to recognize their self-worth and develop the necessary skills to reach their full potential. Pathways believes advocacy, prevention, and safety are the primary tools in eliminating domestic violence and sexual assault. To achieve this goal, SVS groups these three strategies into the following service areas:

  • Pathways: provides shelter for women, men, and children seeking a safe place away from domestic violence and sexual assault.
  • Community Advocacy: provide case management, legal advocacy, and supportive services to make accessing services more attainable.
  • Prevention and Education informs and educates the public regarding domestic violence and sexual assault and how to recognize, respond, and refer individuals who need services.
