The Center for Court Innovation (the Center), a project of the Fund for the City of New York, is a non-profit organization that promotes new thinking about how to build safer communities, reduce crime and incarceration, and strengthen public trust in justice. The Center creates operating projects that have been documented to reduce violence, improve public safety, and reduce the use of jail and prison. The Center also performs original research on topics of justice reform and provides consulting services to justice innovators around the world. The Center has a particular focus on reducing violence and victimization, with considerable experience developing, implementing, and evaluating responses to both community and family violence.
This initiative is a partnership between the Center and the NYC Office to Prevent Gun Violence (OPGV), housed within the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice. OPGV is focused on coordinating the city’s anti-gun violence initiatives. OPGV has initiated the Crisis Management System (CMS), supporting community-based organizations that interrupt conflicts before they escalate and connect at-risk constituents to services. This network deploys teams of credible messengers who mediate conflicts on the street and connect high-risk individuals to services that can reduce the long-term risk of violence. Together, these organizations serve 17 police precincts that are home to one in four New Yorkers in areas that account for 51% of shootings.
The Center and OPGV have identified the need to address the intersection between violence in the community and violence at home, with a goal of shifting behavioral norms in the CMS communities towards healthier pro-social relationships. To enhance these efforts, the Center and OPGV are seeking a Domestic Violence Coordinator Supervisor to manage and support a team of six Domestic Violence Coordinators, who will work directly with the CMS sites.
The Domestic Violence Coordinator Supervisor will work in a team-based environment to provide clinical and managerial supervision to the training, prevention, and intervention services provided by the Domestic Violence Coordinators. The DVCS will assist the CMS sites in working with community members impacted by domestic violence, ensure that access to community networks is strengthened for individuals exposed to violence, and develop relationships with community-based organizations and public safety partners. A significant proportion of services will be focused on community members that have caused harm in domestic and/or intimate partner violence dynamics.
The DVCS will be a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW), Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and/or a Licensed Marital & Family Therapist (LMFT), with experience in domestic violence who can support the Domestic Violence Coordinators in delivering training and ongoing support for staff at CMS sites citywide, providing prevention and trauma response services, identifying and linking community members to appropriate resources, and conducting community activities designed to increase awareness on domestic and intimate partner violence (DV/IPV) and improve perceptions on how to have heathy relationships.
