Specialist, Fatherhood Support - UpNext Program

Center for Court Innovation

New York City, NY
14 days ago
New York City, NY
14 days ago

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 six 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 seeks a Fatherhood Support Specialist (FSS) to serve as a case manager and facilitator for UpNext, a family engagement and workforce development program for non-custodial fathers. Many of these fathers have had previous involvement with the criminal justice system, but it is not a requirement to join the program. The FSS plays an important role at UpNext in both the classroom providing instruction, but also providing individualist support and case management. In leading group facilitation, the FSS engages participants in conversations about culture, parenting techniques, concepts of toxic masculinity, navigating co-parenting challenges, establishing healthy social skills, and other topics focused on encouraging stronger skills in parenting and promoting healthy self-awareness.

As a case manager, the FSS works with fathers as they work on meeting goals that impact themselves and their families. Additionally, the FSS will have the opportunity to engage UpNext alumni after program graduation to keep them engaged with current programming and opportunities. The FSS will report to the UpNext Program Coordinator. 

Midtown Community Court strongly encourages and seeks applications from women, people of color, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities, as well as individuals with prior contact with the criminal justice system.

  • Provide one-on-one case management and support services to participants (service plan, referrals, and follow up);
