Case Management Program Assistant – Network for Victim Recovery of DC

The Network for Victim Recovery of the District of Columbia (NVRDC) seeks to empower crime victims in the District of Columbia through a collaborative approach by providing holistic, comprehensive services in three ways: community-based education, therapeutic, and legal support. We want a crime victim to achieve justice and self-determination. Regardless of income, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation, race, or gender identity/expression, the impact of crime on its victims (direct victim(s) or friend/family members of victim) can be devastating ' emotionally, financially, and legally. NVRDC is here to guide people in this difficult journey from victim to survivor. Created in 2012, the founders of NVRDC were motivated by three deep beliefs: 1. Survivors of crime must have a welcoming place to which to go in order to learn of their rights, process their experiences and enjoy a supportive and empowering environment in which to determine how to respond to the crime; 2. The knowledge that many victims of crime may not be able to be served elsewhere because they do not qualify for services since their income is higher than allowed and/or they are 'conflicted out' (lawyer lingo meaning that the person who has inflicted the harm was served by that organization before); and 3. The research that has affirmatively shown that legal services provided with supportive counseling and case management services provides much greater impact on victims, transforming their lives.

NVRDC seeks a case management program assistant to provide hospital based crisis support in an on-call capacity as part of the DC Sexual Assault Crisis Response Program and to work collaboratively to provide case management support to survivors of crime. This individual will take approximately 4 on-call shifts lasting 24 hours each month for survivors of sexual assault seeking a medical forensic examination. This individual will provide case management to survivors of all crime including, providing referrals, attending court or other legal proceedings with a survivor of crime, completing criminal compensation applications, and provide on-going support. This individual will be resourceful, highly organized, a team player, very flexible, a critical and analytical thinker, self-reflective and self-aware, and open to growth and learning. The case management program assistant will be committed to working with people from diverse cultural, linguistic, economic, educational and vocational backgrounds to demonstrate NVRDC's dedication to social justice and access to justice for all victims of crime in DC.
