Partnerships for Trauma Recovery (PTR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the psychosocial impacts of trauma among international survivors of human rights abuses including war, torture, forced displacement, human trafficking and persecution due to identity and beliefs. At our Bay Area-based Mosaic Healing Center, we: (a) Provide culturally aware, trauma-informed and linguistically accessible mental health care for refugees, asylees, asylum seekers and human trafficking survivors, (b) Expand clinical capacity to serve these populations, and (c) Advocate for policies to prevent trauma and re-traumatization. With combined expertise gained through over twenty years of providing clinical services to survivors of war trauma, torture and persecution, and in-depth experience implementing international human rights programming, our team integrates the fields of global mental health and human rights to expand the range – and increase the depth – of psychosocial support for this highly vulnerable population.

The Associate Director will contribute to fundraising, communications, management, outreach, administration and responding to new initiatives and needs, as they arise. The ideal candidate will have a solid track record in fundraising, organizational development and experience in the field of human rights and/or global mental health.
