NIWRC is now hiring for the new StrongHearts Native Helpline in Austin, TX!

The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) in partnership with the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH), is excited to announce that the StrongHearts Native Helpline, to be staffed by Native advocates, is scheduled to launch on January 4, 2017. The goal of the StrongHearts Native Helpline is to ensure that Native victims of domestic violence can access safety in a culturally relevant manner and eventually live their lives free of abuse.

StrongHearts Native Helpline will provide confidential, cost free crisis intervention information, safety planning, culturally appropriate support, and referral services to Native victims of domestic violence calling its toll-free number. NIWRC has focused development of information and referral resources in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. Outreach to the Southwest (AZ, NM, UT, NV) and Alaska has been initiated and is ongoing.

As a result of an unexpected acceleration of our development timeline, NIWRC has agreed to house StrongHearts in Austin, Texas with the National Domestic Violence Hotline, to allow StrongHearts staff to receive direct support and mentoring from the NDVH. This is important in building a strong base aimed at enhancing services and outreach to tribal communities and Alaska Native villages. New Hires are expected to live in Austin, TX for initial start up time frame, then relocate to permanent Helpline office in Tulsa, OK.
