City of Albuquerque: Social Services and Behavioral Health ServicesDeadline: August 29, 2018
The City of Albuquerque is soliciting innovative and effective proposals from qualified non-profit organizations interested in providing services for populations in need of specific social services for survivors of sexual assault, with an emphasis on under-represented populations. Priority will be given to agencies who demonstrate a commitment to collaboration to effectively and efficiently provide a comprehensive set up services to include:
- Year-round, 24 hour per day crisis hotline, survivor advocacy and counseling services; and
- Individual, group and family therapeutic services; and
- Services provided in the language spoken by the sexual assault survivor – to the extent that is practical; and
- Linkage to services within and beyond the agency or collaboration network to support comprehensive needs of sexual assault survivors; and
- Administration of appropriate assessment and evaluation tools by trained staff to assess stress levels and trauma symptoms that need to be addressed. Administer follow-up assessments to evaluate reduction in trauma symptoms and ensure linkages to supportive services have been established; and
- Provide advocacy and therapeutic services as clinically appropriate to survivors who are receiving notifications related to the processing of sexual assault evidence kits.
The proposal must demonstrate how the agency or collaboration will leverage Medicaid funds and other services in the community to increase efficiency of the use of City funds.
