The Center for Court Innovation is a non-profit organization that works to create a more effective and humane justice system by performing original research and helping launch reforms by guiding justice innovators, nationally and internationally. The Center creates operating projects that have been documented to reduce the use of jail and prison, assist victims of crime, and strengthen communities.
Launched in early 2020, Manhattan Justice Opportunities (Manhattan Justice) seeks to rethink justice in Manhattan and to build a justice system that is more responsive to individuals’ and communities’ needs. Manhattan Justice is a centralized, court-based screening and referral hub that provides judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys at New York County Criminal Court and Supreme Court with a wide array of social service-based sentencing options in misdemeanor and felony cases. Bringing together a consortium of service providers led by the Center for Court Innovation, Manhattan Justice offers onsite case management, psycho-educational groups, restorative justice, and other programming options. Manhattan Justice also provides referrals to community-based service providers for mental health, substance use, employment, primary healthcare services and more. These services are open to anyone who needs them — including court participants’ families and friends, and others affected by the criminal justice system. These services, which are both mandated and voluntary, help participants address underlying issues in their lives, build stability, and decrease their likelihood of further justice involvement.
Manhattan Justice is seeking a Senior Resource Coordinator. Reporting to the Deputy Project Director, the Senior Resource Coordinator will lead a team of staff who receive referrals from court, conduct outreach and scheduling, and report on compliance for mandated participants. This team provides coverage in various Criminal Court courtrooms to engage legal parties and participants, explains Manhattan Justice’s services to legal parties, coordinates new referrals, orients new participants to Manhattan Justice, and schedules participants for services. Once a participant is enrolled in programming, the team provides regular written and verbal updates and compliance reports to the court, including to the judge, clerks, defense attorneys, and prosecutors. The Senior Resource Coordinator will oversee the team’s daily operations and help lead on engagement with legal parties, as well as conduct outreach and scheduling, and coordinate compliance reporting for a caseload of mandated participants.
Manhattan Justice strongly encourages and seeks applications from women, people of color,members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities, as well as individuals with prior contact with the criminal justice system.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Compensation: Salary range starts at $52,000 and is commensurate with experience. Excellent benefits package including comprehensive health, dental and life insurance, four weeks paid vacation, paid sick time, TransitChek, Flexible Spending Account plans for health and dependent care, a 403(b) retirement plan and a 401(k) retirement plan with a generous employer match.
