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 their 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. They strive to provide hope, empowerment, and improved quality of life that promote people reaching their full potential as individuals and productive community members.
The Greene County CARE office offers a variety of services including Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse, and Gambling Addiction Outpatient Services, Community Treatment Team, Peer Services, and Sexual Violence Services (STTARS).
Over the past year, the STTARS Program has launched the Sexual Violence Doesn’t Discriminate Campaign. This campaign focuses on survivorship and the aspects of race, gender, orientation, and identity. Realizing that there are individuals in our communities that are underserved and highly vulnerable, they want to do their best to do outreach that is inclusive and assists survivors to know that they are not alone and that services are available and accessible.
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. Evidence based Prevention Education programming is also offered to schools, professionals, and community groups. 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 Volunteer Coordinator, Josh, at 724-627-6108.
