The CRCs are located in the West Jordan City Hall, the Riverton City Hall, and Salt Lake County libraries and homeless shelters.
• Prevention and Education: informs and educates communities regarding domestic violence as well as how to recognize, respond, and refer individuals who are in need of services.
JOB SUMMARY: Therapists provide mental health services to clients. They offer individual, family, crisis, and group therapy for residents of the shelter and individuals in the community at SVS’ community sites. Therapist will provide clients with the emotional support needed during their time at the shelter and will make appropriate referrals for when they exit shelter.
