About the Agency

The Monterey County Rape Crisis Center (MCRCC) is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to provide ongoing advocacy, support and healing for all victims and survivors of sexual assault, human trafficking and child abuse; and to prevent sexual violence in our community through
education.

Overview

The Crisis Intervention Services Manager is an integral part of the Crisis Intervention Team – a high functioning team that provides crisis intervention services to survivors of sexual assault, human trafficking and child abuse and their significant others. The Crisis Intervention Services Manager provides these direct services to clients and supervises volunteer Sexual Assault Counselors who also do this work.

The Crisis Intervention Program includes the following components:

● MCRCC’s helplines and the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). Both programs are bilingual, 24-hours, and operated by staff and trained volunteer Sexual Assault Counselors.

● Sexual Assault Response Team (SART): SART includes trained nurse examiners and physicians’ assistants, also known as Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners (SAFE), local law enforcement agencies, the District Attorney’s office and rape crisis advocates. The SART approach helps reduce trauma and increase support, while ensuring efficient and
consistent evidence collection.

● Child Abuse Treatment (CHAT) Program: Advocacy and counseling services, specifically for children. The CHAT program also includes coordination with the Archer Child Advocacy Center (ACAC) and Monterey County Children’s Behavioral Health to provide
accompaniment, advocacy, and counseling services to children.

● Advocacy and accompaniment: Survivors often have to tell their stories to law enforcement, social workers, the district attorney, and other entities to get what needs to be completed. It is important that MCRCC provide support and let survivors know their rights in diverse environments.

All MCRCC staff and volunteers complete a 47-hour state certified sexual assault training to provide crisis intervention services to survivors and significant others.
