RPSV serves ~9,000 adults with mental health, substance abuse, and homelessness issues annually. Each of these individuals has a story to tell of facing their issues head-on and overcoming them to live the life of their dreams.

RPSV is searching for at least five individuals to capture individual stories and tell them in short, pithy, and compelling stories. Stories can be captured via written word, powerful short quotes, or video clips (per the wishes and consent of the participant). We would like to have at least one storyteller per program site (in Annandale, Arlington, Merrifield, Reston, and South County Alexandria).

Your materials will be used on our website, in our e-newsletter, and on our social media channels. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in building their professional portfolio in the area of social media and communications.

Mission Statement

At RPSV, we are who we serve.This is because Individuals who have recovered from their mental illnesses and substance abuse issues staff RPSV. We are peers from upper management to our valued volunteers. This unique aspect is what opens the door to growth and healing by those served by the organization. When individuals learn that those staffing the centers understand first-hand the challenges they are facing, they thrive in the inclusive, empathetic, nonjudgmental atmosphere.
