We envision a world in which human trafficking is abolished and every survivor is strong, connected and free. We are the only organization in New York City that provides safe housing to all women survivors of all types of human trafficking, and we uniquely do this through our community living model. It offers a safe home by welcoming each woman into a supportive, caring community. This community helps her recover from her trauma, regain her sense of self-worth, and enables her to move from isolation towards reclaiming her independence. 


Job Summary: As the Director of Safe Housing you lead our trauma-informed approach and program model to serve women survivors who have been trafficked. As a member of the Leadership Team, you are driven to elevate our service delivery of care.


What's in it for you: You’ll be a key member of the leadership team, with the opportunity to lead a unique community living safe housing program model. You will be part of an effort to serve women survivors and provide holistic support for their healing and support for independent living.

You lead confidently with respect, trust, and team accountability. You feel comfortable delegating to your team to contribute to their professional growth. You are knowledgeable in clinical care and have training and experience in trauma-related interventions and services. You practice and demonstrate empathy, trauma-informed care, critical thinking, problem solving, and manage and prioritize your time effectively. 

What you'll do: You'll lead the implementation and assessment of the program. You will be responsible for managing a team of professionals and directing program operations.
