2180 3rd Avenue
As part of its Criminal Justice Investment Initiative, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is making investments to ensure that people receive services to support positive outcomes and prevent any future contact with law enforcement. The Community Navigator program at the Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work, located in East Harlem will develop a network of community navigators -trained peers and social workers- to help individuals locate, connect, engage, and stay involved with the services they need to meet and achieve their goals. Navigators will be mobile and serve as the bridge to guide individuals across different systems, city agencies, and organizations.
