Salary range starts at $43,000 and is commensurate with experience.

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 1993, the award-winning Midtown Community Court is one of the country’s first problem-solving courts. It provides alternatives to fines and jail as a response to low-level crime. Seeking to reduce crime and incarceration and increase public trust in justice, the Midtown Community Court works with neighborhood stakeholders to improve Midtown Manhattan. The court responds creatively to low-level offending, seeking sentences that are restorative to the victim, defendant, and community. The court’s onsite social services clinic and fatherhood and workforce development program are open to everyone—court participants as well as community members. Always growing in its reach, the court currently hears cases that originate in four NYPD precincts and serves as the Adolescent Diversion Part and Human Trafficking Intervention Court in Manhattan. Most recently, in response to a national opioid crisis, the court launched Manhattan’s Overdose Avoidance and Recovery (OAR) part. The OAR part seeks to connect individuals who are at risk of overdose to substance use treatment and supportive services.

The Midtown Community Court is seeking a Case Manager. Reporting to the project’s Director of Intake, the Case Manager will be responsible for providing trauma-informed case management, facilitating psychoeducational groups, helping to promote compliance with programming, and providing administrative support to the court’s programs.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Provide comprehensive, strengths-based, case management services to clients to help address issues such as substance use, mental health, trauma, domestic violence, housing, and vocational needs;
  • Conduct intakes and needs-based screenings;
  • Facilitate a range of on-site psychoeducational groups and conduct individual case management sessions;
  • Make referrals to off-site community-based partners;
  • Manage and monitor compliance with mandates, including frequent communication with clients, court stakeholders, and community-based providers;
  • Report on compliance to court stakeholders through written or verbal updates, and work collaboratively with attorneys to bring program participants into compliance, as needed;
  • Complete scheduling of services for clients both in-person and on the phone, for individual sessions, groups, and community service;
  • Accompany participants to community-based agencies, as needed;
  • Maintain client information and case management notes in electronic databases and paper files;
  • Assist in providing resource coordinator coverage in the courtroom, as needed;
  • Assist with crisis intervention and de-escalation, as needed;
  • Assist with administrative responsibilities, including data management and reporting, as needed;
  • Participate in regular staff meetings, interdisciplinary meetings, and on- and off-site trainings including some evening and weekend programming, as needed;
  • Perform other relevant duties as assigned.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree or 3-4 years of experience working in case management as an equivalency. Experience in a court or criminal justice setting preferred. Experience with drug/alcohol treatment, mental health services, co-occurring disorders, adolescent development, trauma-informed and strength-based approaches preferred. Candidates must be willing and able to work collaboratively with a variety of court personnel and on-site partner agencies in a high-pressure/fast paced work environment. Court-based work is a unique and demanding area of practice, and candidates must be open to constructive engagement with differing and, at times, competing perspectives. Candidates must have the ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds in a culturally-competent manner. Must be detail oriented with great time management and organizational skills.
