Womankind works with survivors of gender-based violence to rise above trauma and build a path to healing. By providing critical resources and deep cultural sensitivity, Womankind aims to help survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual violence find refuge, recovery, and renewal for themselves and their families. We provide innovative healing services and award-winning assistance to individuals of all ages. Depending on circumstance, survivors have access to a safe place to live, assistance with housing, employment, English language training, legal immigration assistance, financial empowerment, and so much more.
One Again is Womankind’s sexual violence (SV) program. Womankind supports SV survivors with counseling, concrete services and wellness programming that is open-ended, multi-lingual, and brings together somatic and other expressive modalities that emphasize healing. The coordinator will provide support to our wellness program focused on sexual violence survivors. Pathways to Healing (P2H) offers trauma-sensitive Yoga, NADA ear acupuncture, tea-and-healing circle group work to allow survivors a space to reconnect with their bodies and minds in an environment of comfort and cultural familiarity.
In addition, the coordinator will focus on coordinated community response (CCR). Womankind staff actively engages in external training and outreach, sharing tools for diverse human services professionals around the city, to merge trauma sensitivity with cultural sensitivity in supporting victim/survivors of complex trauma. We are also engaged in coalition building with other agencies serving Asian communities alongside advocacy efforts at key city and state discussions on sexual violence work. To this end, Womankind is present on college campuses to increase awareness and engage in SV-focused conversations with API student/s, groups, and faculty.
In 2019, the One Again program will undergo a few changes to ensure that Womankind’s SV-based projects have holistic approaches and are self-sustaining. The coordinator will support, inform, and add to the current decisions in place to implement the changes.
