Open Positions

The Harbor provides advocacy, prevention and support to promote self-determination and hope for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Established in 1976 as a crisis phone line for women experiencing domestic violence, The Harbor has evolved to provide trauma-informed, culturally responsive, gender-inclusive services to more than 400 survivors each year. Our services include a 24-hour support line and in-person crisis response, a drop-in advocacy center, confidential shelter, and wrap around services like support groups, assistance with protection orders and legal sport, and mental health services. Our team is here to support all survivors with strengths-based services that promote self-determination and hope.

 

We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. We encourage those who meet the basic requirements of the position to apply regardless of whether you meet every criteria. All persons of every race, ethnic background, spiritual belief, economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or personal ability, are equally affirmed into membership, leadership and employment at The Harbor and are joyfully welcomed.

The Harbor staff has nearly doubled in the past 4-years. We are always exploring grant funding opportunities to increase services, prevention, and support for survivors of interpersonal violence and stalking in Clatsop County.

Please describe your interest in this work, any requirements or needs related to employment, and send you resume and cover letter to jessica@harbornw.org.
