Nurse Volunteers

Gracehaven was founded to care for the growing number of victims of domestic minor sex trafficking. More than 1,000 minors are sexually trafficked in Ohio annually. To effectively care for victims and prevent others from being enslaved in this life, Gracehaven employs a comprehensive approach to combatting domestic minor sex trafficking through Prevention Education, Intervention Training, Survivor Care and Support, and Community Collaboration.

Gracehaven is a verified member of the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance, a community of service providers for survivors of human trafficking.

 


Gracehaven Needs Nurse Volunteers!

The following are areas in need of trauma-informed nursing expertise:

● Initial Intake Assessment - Medical needs are identified and follow-up recommendations made. 

● Possible Medical Check - “Head to toe” screening for communicable diseases within 72 hours of placement if youth has not had a screening prior to placement and/or fostering connections can not see them within the required timeframe.

● Individual Service Plan (ISP) - Review all appropriate sections for medical contraindications, with required sign-off in the Behavior Modification section.

● Medication Administration - Review and provide input and/or train staff in the area of medication dispensing and documentation. Properly dispose of expired or other unneeded medications.

● Ongoing Medical Oversight - Trauma-informed medical triage for our youth, with availability to come to campus, as needed. 

● Other Identified Health Training - STDs ongoing class
