Who We Are

Ruby’s Place (RP) is an innovative nonprofit committed to ending domestic violence, human trafficking, and violent crime through hope, advocacy and connection. Our services include emergency shelter, transitional housing, rental subsidies, mental health services, and wrap around services. All our services are trauma-sensitive and client-centered and are provided at no cost to our clients. There are no barriers to participate in our programs.


Ruby's Place is led by survivors with a focus on reflection, innovation, and connection. We value diversity, and equity across all races, genders, sexualities, and abilities. We believe in fostering relationships, both in our direct service work and throughout our internal work culture. We aim to cultivate an inclusive workplace that appreciates and emphasizes the voices of those most impacted by violence including women, individuals with disabilities, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community. We recognize these voices are vital to interrupting the cycle of violence and transforming lives towards safety, unity, and trust. We encourage those with lived experience with housing instability, trafficking, domestic violence, and interpersonal violence to join our team.

Under the supervision of the Director of Clinical Services, the incumbent will recruit, orient and train new TRC clinical staff to provide assertive outreach, clinical case management, and trauma-sensitive, evidence-based psychotherapy services to acute survivors of violent crime. The incumbent will also develop policies and procedures to direct clinical practice, monitor client flow, and develop/maintain community partnerships.
