The Urban Justice Center (UJC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advocating on behalf of NYC's most vulnerable citizens. The Domestic Violence Project (DVP) at the Urban Justice Center is seeking to hire a licensed social worker to work with and on behalf of victims of domestic violence. DVP's mission is to help victims of domestic violence and their children live free of violence and abuse. We consider domestic violence in any type of relationship, regardless of gender or sexual identity, to be a human rights violation.

To accomplish this, our attorneys, social workers and advocates provide legal representation in NYC Family and Integrated Domestic Violence Courts, mental health services, advocacy, case management, and on-going domestic violence education and outreach activities throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
DVP seeks a social worker to work within a legal-psychosocial framework with survivors of domestic violence to provide therapeutic individual sessions; implement and supervise group sessions; provide economic empowerment and financial coaching to victims of domestic violence in community based clinics; as well as education and outreach throughout NYC about the clinical/psychological effects of domestic violence on victims and their children.
