Rachel Rust is joining The Community Outreach as a Crisis Care Coordinator! She is excited to be part of a thriving organization that is committed to helping those in need with finances, housing, transportation, and a variety of other types of assistance. As a Sioux Falls native, Rachel enjoys serving her community and being an advocate for those who seek support.
Rachel graduated from the University of South Dakota in 2013 with degrees in addictions studies and sociology. Prior to her role at The Community Outreach, Rachel worked as an addictions counselor at Counseling Resources where she facilitated outpatient groups.
Rachel lives in Sioux Falls with her husband, two kids, and two dogs—a pug and a chug (chihuahua/pug). When she’s not at work helping the Sioux Falls community, Rachel enjoys writing, reading, and traveling. She is an author of YA books and is working on seeing all 50 states. Only four to go!
