Stopping the Violence Outreach (STV Outreach) Program
Working from a client directed and trauma informed lens, the STV Outreach worker supports women in, or, transitioning out of an abusive relationship – to living in safety. Support includes legal advocacy, accessing out-of-town services and income supports, long-term housing solutions and safety planning.
The STV Outreach Worker provides client-directed support in both communities in the Robson Valley. The foundation of service delivery is based on the knowledge of the power imbalances in our society that leads to violence against women, the impacts and dynamics of violence, and the belief in offender accountability. The delivery of service reflects that women have the right to safety, the right to make choices based on her own understanding of her options, experiences, needs, and goals, and with an inherent respect for a woman’s individual situation and perspective.
For more information on our STVO programming and what to expect as a client please see the RVCS STVO Program Information Sheet.
