SPHS CARE CENTER
It is the SPHS CARE Center’s mission to provide quality, recovery based, trauma informed, integrated services including: education, intervention, case management, treatment, after care, and referrals to consumers in Washington, Greene, and Butler Counties.
It is our vision that every individual served, through these trauma informed and integrated services, will have the opportunity for growth and inclusion in their community and have access to culturally competent services and supports of their choice. We strive to provide hope, empowerment, and improved quality of life that promote people reaching their full potential as individuals and productive community members.
During April, The STTARS Program joined the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) and advocates across the nation to celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). SAAM is used as a launching point for new awareness initiatives and this year’s theme is Building Safe Online Spaces. STTARS will continue to promote ways that we can all work together to build spaces both online and in our communities that are centered on safety, inclusion, and respect.
The SPHS CARE Center STTARS Program (Sexual Trauma Treatment and Recovery Services), provides counseling, legal and medical advocacy, and a 24 hotline to survivors of sexual violence and their significant others in Greene and Washington Counties. Telehealth options are available. Prevention Education programming is also offered to schools, professionals, and community groups and can be done in-person or virtually. All services are free and confidential.
The STTARS Program truly appreciates its dedicated volunteers who support us in expanding our reach to individuals in need of services. STTARS program volunteers assist with answering the hotline as well as with community outreach and fundraising events. Training on trauma and victimization is provided to learn about the effects of trauma, mandatory reporting requirements, and how to respond to survivors of sexual violence. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact our office to be linked with our Volunteer Coordinator.
