$40/hr+ as contractor for FSC DENA


Who We Are: The Brothers of the Christian Schools – District of Eastern North America (FSC DENA) is a Roman Catholic religious order of men whose primary mission is education. (www.fscdena.org) FSC DENA has educational ministries that extend from Toronto ON north to Detroit MI west and down the east coast to Florida. We Brothers and our 5,000 Partners serve over 35,000 students/clients on a daily basis in approximately 35 ministries that range from elementary/middle schools to higher education to youth & family services.

FSC DENA is accredited by Praesidium, Inc. (www.praesidiuminc.com) a company that specializes in sexual abuse prevention and training.

We Brothers of FSC DENA are committed to victim/survivor-centered support and assistance for individuals who have been affected by sexual assault by a Brother of the Christian Schools. We recognize that abuse of any kind causes pain and harm for the abused and their families as well as for the larger Catholic and Lasallian communities. We continue to offer compassion, prayers, and direct support for all survivors and are committed to making sure that the mistakes of the past are not repeated. We acknowledge that any types of abuse and harassment are hurtful and wrong. Such actions denigrate the sacredness of an individual and are inconsistent with our values as Brothers of the Christian Schools in the District of Eastern North America.

Position Summary: FSC DENA is seeking a social worker who will serve as a Victim Outreach Coordinator (VOC) for victims/survivors of sexual assault by a Brother of the Christian Schools—living or deceased. When a report of sexual abuse is reported, the VOC serves as the liaison between the Brother Provincial or his designee and the victim/survivor. The VOC serves as the primary/initial point of contact by gathering contact information, the nature of the abuse, and when/where it took place. He/she assesses all safety concerns, provides compassion and sympathy, makes recommendations for counseling, and provides regular updates to the victim/survivor on the status of the investigation. Discretion, attention to detail, problem solving skills, and excellent interpersonal skills are a must. Communication will be done via email, postal mail, and occasional face-to-face interview—if requested by victim/survivor.

Qualifications: MSW preferred, other similar or joint degrees welcome. Familiarity with sexual abuse trauma, victimization, and related issues are essential. Computer proficiency required (Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat). Some travel may be necessary. $40/hour+ as contractor for FSC DENA.
