ROSS Domestic Violence Services

ROSS Domestic Violence Services
Russian Oregon Social Services provides culturally specific domestic violence and sexual assault (DVSA) services to Russian-speaking populations.

Our mission is to increase the awareness and understanding of intimate partner DVSA in the Russian-speaking community and provide support, advocacy and opportunity for self-empowerment to DVSA victims, enabling them to exercise free and informed life choices. We are committed to strengthening families through education, community partnerships, direct services and advocacy using culturally appropriate strategies to ensure that those affected by violence will recover and not perpetuate the cycle of violence.

By providing services, the program goal is to change social attitudes, perspectives and beliefs of Russian-speaking populations related to DVSA.

Our vision is that social change within the Russian-speaking community will eventually lead to a significant decrease in DVSA in this community. The service delivery is respectful, easily accessible, non-intrusive and focuses on safety and confidentiality for the victim.

    Our present services include:
    • 24/7 crisis line.
    • Crisis intervention.
    • Domestic violence and sexual assault prevention.
    • Long-term case management that includes information, agency referrals and safety planning.
    • DVSA support groups.
    • Mentorship program.
    • Assistance obtaining protective orders.
    • Assistance communicating with police and District Attorney’s office.
    • Assistance accessing low-cost/free immigration and legal services.
    • Assistance with temporary and transitional housing.
    • Free mental health counseling.
    • Translation and advocacy while working with mainstream victim and social service providers.

ROSS also provides emergency client assistance, translation and advocacy on behalf of clients while working with mainstream victim and social service providers.
