These positions are not responsible to provide advocacy in child abuse cases.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

A Bachelor’s Degree in a Social Services field or equivalent with a focus on human development or advocacy is preferred.  Experience in social work, emergency services work, or work in a human services field characterized by: crisis work; work with crime victims; work with vulnerable or under-served populations, (ex: children, youth, disabled, elderly); or work in an advocacy role is required. Completion of specialized advocacy training, (e.g. YWCA or Crime Victim Advocate training) will satisfy six months of the experience requirement.

REPRESENTATIVE EXAMPLES OF WORK:

The Mineral County Crime Victim Advocates:

  • Assess complex needs, including safety issues, housing concerns, and the availability of financial resources for primary and secondary victims of intimate violence, stalking and sexual assault.
  • Provide or access initial crisis counseling for crime victims through phone and in-person crisis intervention while providing emotional support and education.
  • Provide emergency legal advocacy for victims, and be available to follow any legal matter through the judicial process and help clients access pro bono legal counsel, as needed.
  • Follow all statutory guidelines to screen applicants to determine eligibility; complete and file Temporary Orders of Protection (TOP); and prepare clients for TOP hearings.
  • This position must be available to be on-call some weekends and holidays.

An important piece of this position is serving as a liaison for the victim with criminal justice agencies, attorneys, medical care providers, social service agencies, and other community resources.  The CVA will:

  • Help with the completion of Restitution Reports/Affidavits; Victim Impact Statements; provide information on the Crime Victims’ Compensation Program; assist crime victims in completing applications for reimbursement from the State compensation program, and have a strong knowledge of community support services to refer clients appropriately.
  • Be a supportive presence from the initial report of an offense through the investigation and through Sentencing, as needed and requested.
  • Maintain contact with and offer long-term support to individuals who received assistance for a period of time after any criminal or civil court matter has been adjudicated.

This position shall work in a supportive role with the Healthy Relationships Project, and will attend appropriate trainings to increase one’s knowledge base of victim advocacy.

This position requires a high level of confidentiality, the ability to work with diverse and often marginalized populations, and a full understanding of the Montana Advocate Privilege law.

PHYSICAL/ENVIRONMENTAL DEMANDS:

The work is primarily performed in an office setting but involves frequent walks to city and county offices.  This position may require trips to rural areas of Mineral County once it is safe for the CVA to do so, and attending training opportunities to increase the employee’s skill set.  The work involves crisis counseling with people who have experienced intimate and/or sexual violence, which creates the potential for significant emotional stress for the employee and possible exposure to violent incidents.  Work is performed in an office environment that has some safety features in place.

This position has periods of autonomy wherein the employee must be able to establish and maintain a schedule and provide accountability to one’s supervisor of time spent on the various position tasks.

GRANT FUNDED POSITION:

The Mineral County Crime Victim Advocates are funded through a competitive grant through the Office of Violence against Women (OVW) and the Violence of Crime Act.  The funding for one position is currently secure through the federal Fiscal Year 2020-2021 (ending September 30, 2021), and the second CVA position is funded through the state fiscal year (June 30, 2021).  Mineral County plans to seek continued funding for this position, but further funding is not assured.
