An abuse center seeks help

News

An organization geared to helping victims of domestic abuse is, itself, looking for help. 

The Abused Adult Resource Center (AARC) needs part- time workers at the emergency and transitional shelter. 

The non-profit organization provides services and programs to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

New hires would maintain the safety of the shelter, help residents and more. 

The pay is $11.50 an hour, but organizers say a job with AARC is about more than just the pay check.

“The title would be residential advocate, and I think that the main reason you would want to work here is because you have a passion for helping people and helping them find a life free of violence,” said Michelle Erickson, Interim Executive Director at the Abuse Adult Resource Center. “No one should have to live in a situation where there is violence inflicted on them or their children. That is our main goal — to just help create safer community.”

In 2017, the organization met with nearly 22,000 people.

The organization serves people in seven North Dakota counties: Burleigh, Morton, Emmons, Grant, Kidder, Sheridan and Sioux.
