Position description

Safe Horizon is the nation's leading victim assistance organization and each year serves over 250,000 people who have been touched by violence by helping victims of crime and abuse through their crises. Recognized as a leader responding to the changing needs of its clients, Safe Horizon is sought after for its expertise on issues of violence and victimization in the City, the state and across the country.  Its programs are woven into the fabric of New York City:  in community-based offices; domestic violence shelters; courts; police precincts; and schools. Whether responding to child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking or other violent crimes, Safe Horizon helps victims and their families heal and rebuild their lives.

 

Safe Horizon’s $50 million budget and full-time staff of 650 supports a variety of program services including running a 24-hour hotline, providing safe shelter and food, and giving assistance through the legal process.  Safe Horizon also provides supportive services such as mental health counseling and case management, as well as advocating on issues dealing with domestic violence and child abuse. 

 

Safe Horizon’s Anti-Trafficking Program (ATP) applies a multi-tiered approach to eradicating human trafficking.  First, we provide intensive case management, supportive counseling and legal services to holistically meet the needs of trafficked persons.  While recognizing that client services alone will not turn the tide on human trafficking, our Anti-Trafficking Program also offers a range of services including community education, technical assistance, training and advocacy to foster systemic change.
