POSITION: Case Manager (3 positions)

ORGANIZATION: Center for Court Innovation, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY

The Center for Court Innovation is a non-profit dedicated to creating a more humane and effective justice system. We operate at the cutting edge of criminal justice reform in the New York area by developing, planning, launching, and managing large-scale projects that serve thousands of justice-involved people each year. Our projects have been documented to reduce the use of incarceration and conviction, while improving public safety and increasing public confidence in government. Our projects include the award-winning Red Hook Community Justice Center, the Midtown Community Court, Bronx Community Solutions, Brooklyn Justice Initiatives, Staten Island Justice Center, and Newark Community Solutions. We also operate supervised release programs (as an alternative to bail) in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island; Project Reset, an early diversion program in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn; young adult courts in Brooklyn and Manhattan; and a new felony alternative-to-incarceration program in Manhattan. Our criminal justice programs work with nearly 30,000 individuals each year—with the prospect of more in the days to come. Our goal is to create a criminal justice system that offers meaningful and proportionate outcomes, that treats everyone with dignity and respect, and that strengthens communities and supports victims.

Bronx Community Solutions (BCS), Brooklyn Justice Initiatives (BJI), and the Staten Island Justice Center (SIJC) are each seeking case managers for the Supervised Release Program. Supervised Release offers an alternative to jail, providing pretrial supervision, case management, and voluntary social services to people charged with misdemeanor and non-violent felony offenses. Program participants are monitored to ensure their appearance at court dates, and they receive referrals to community-based programming such as job training, drug treatment, and mental health counseling. Following recent legislative changes in New York State that curtail the use of cash bail and pre-trial detention, the Center is anticipating dramatic growth in the population served through Supervised Release, offering case managers and other staff the opportunity to contribute to an exciting program at an unprecedented scale.  As part of this expansion, the Supervised Release Program will provide services to a growing youth population and take on bail-eligible felony and misdemeanor charges, including violent felony arrests.

The Case Manager will be responsible for managing a caseload of program participants by providing supervision and court monitoring for participants admitted to the Supervised Release program, referring participants to voluntary social service interventions, coordinating with service providers to facilitate and assist participants with voluntary service referrals, and helping promote compliance with pretrial release conditions. The Case Manager will stay in regular contact with participants, including facilitating in-person case management meetings, sending frequent court date reminders, and maintaining contact with attorneys’ offices and community-based providers. The Case Manager will also co-facilitate groups and assist program staff in the development and implementation of onsite services for participants. Additionally, they will draft memos to keep the court informed of participants’ compliance.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Administer risk and needs assessment tools to participants admitted to the Supervised Release Program (SRP);
  • Provide supervision and court monitoring for participants admitted to SRP through regular in-person meetings, phone calls, emails, and/or text messages; this may include communication with clients on nights and weekends;

  • Complete all necessary documentation and input data into a computer database;
  • Establish and maintain linkages with community partners who can provide age-appropriate interventions and services to court-involved individuals
  • Participate in trainings and attend department and program staff meetings;
  • Attend project events, community events, and meetings after hours, as needed;
  • Provide case management services to mandated Alternative to Incarceration (ATI) clients and assist with ATI coverage, as needed;
  • Assist with other programming as needed.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree or 3-4 years’ 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.

Candidates must have the ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds in a culturally-competent manner. Candidates must also be comfortable working with adolescents, adults, and families.  Must be detail oriented with great time management and organizational skills.
