JustUs Job Opportunities

About Rising Ground and STEPS to End Family Violence: Driven by the belief that each of us can
thrive when life has hope and opportunity, Rising Ground provides caring support and proven
paths to positive change, helping children, adults, and families rise above adversity and each
year Rising Ground is a positive force in the lives of more than 25,000 individuals. STEPS to End
Family Violence - Rising Ground’s anti-intimate partner violence program - offers a variety of
trauma-informed, anti-oppressive programming focused on the prevention of intimate partner
violence; advocacy and healing for survivors and children impacted by abusive partner behavior;
accountability classes for young men who have caused harm to their intimate partner; and
training intended to increase awareness of the epidemic of gender-based violence. Since the
program's founding in 1986, STEPS has been deliberately dedicated to engaging in work that is
innovative and deeply survivor-centered and works to promote the idea that support for
survivors of IPV that is not aligned with anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist/womanist principles
tends to unintentionally mimic systems of oppression, and is ultimately, re-traumatizing and
ineffective.
