Helpline Specialist-Elder Abuse-Part Time
Upper East Side, NY
Org Unit: Elder Abuse
Work Days: Weekdays and some weekends
Exemption Status: Exempt
The NYC Elder Abuse Center at Weill Cornell Medicine (NYCEAC/WCM) works with local, statewide and national partners to develop and implement innovative and collaborative approaches to the complex problem of elder mistreatment. One such approach is the Elder Abuse Helpline for Concerned Persons (“Helpline”), a confidential, non-emergency, no-cost service for family, friends, neighbors, and others who become aware that a NYC resident, 60 years of age and older, is being abused, neglected, and/or financially exploited. Concerned Persons are often distressed about the situation and can experience a wide range of related emotional and practical problems, but may not know where to turn for help.
Experienced Helpline Specialists (“Specialists”) provide Concerned Persons with emotional support, information about elder abuse dynamics and dangers, crisis intervention, resources, referrals, and potential pathways for seeking assistance for the older person, and for themselves. Helpline services are provided without judgment or expectation. The Helpline will expand to serve the New York City/metropolitan area at the beginning of 2021 (including Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Putnam counties). Through a collaborative partnership with the Upstate Elder Abuse Center at Lifespan the Helpline will begin expansion throughout New York State in June 2021.
Reporting to the Helpline Clinical Program Supervisor, the Specialist will: 1) provide direct services to Concerned Persons via phone and email with a focus on serving people who speak Spanish, 2) help to develop public awareness materials, media strategies, and outreach coordination for the Helpline in the NYC/metro Latinx communities, and 3) provide elder abuse and Helpline trainings in Latinx and other communities as needed.
A new Helpline public awareness campaign is underway, featuring print and video materials in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and English. Currently, the Helpline uses a language interpreter/translation service to provide services to Concerned Persons who have Limited English Proficiency (LEP).

North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence
New York, New York
For nearly twenty-five years, The North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence (the Coalition) has supported survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, challenging the systemic racism, institutional injustices, and cultural barriers survivors face. Founded and led by local Latinx and Black survivors, the Coalition strives to empower all North Brooklyn survivors to direct and lead the movement to end domestic violence and sexual assault in their respective neighborhoods.
The Coalition provides comprehensive, trauma-informed, community-based services to help people reclaim their lives. The organization provides those who seek help with access to a community-based network, and therapeutic, legal, and other supportive services. In addition, the Coalition engages the wider local community through outreach, education, advocacy, and activism.
Despite its name, the Coalition is an independent, nonprofit organization. Currently serving the Williamsburg, Bushwick, Bedford Stuyvesant, and Greenpoint communities, the Coalition was launched in 1996 by North Brooklyn resident Evelyn Cardona as a grassroots effort to empower domestic and sexual violence survivors to advocate for themselves and others. The name derives from the assistance Cardona received from six community-based organizations – Los Sures, St. Nicholas, El Regreso, Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, Nuestros Niños, and Ridgewood Bushwick – to found the Coalition as one of the only organizations serving people facing domestic violence and sexual assault in the area.
Today, these founding partners still refer participants of the various housing, social services, legal services, and employment programs in the vicinity in need of the Coalition’s services, and members of their leadership teams sit on the Coalition’s Board of Directors.
Services provided by the Coalition are both holistic and trauma-informed, allowing survivors to determine their own course of action and reaffirm a sense of autonomy that may have been lost due to the dynamics of domestic violence. Among other services, trained advocates provide immediate on-call support to survivors of sexual assault in the emergency department at partnering NYCHH Woodhull Hospital, the Coalition’s legal practice provides direct representation and consultative services for cases pending in Kings County courts, and the Coalition provides training for survivors who want to publicly advocate for survivor-rights, and encourages them to directly participate in outreach efforts with the Coalition team.
Over the past five years, the Coalition has expanded fourfold, growing their budget to just over $1 million. The Coalition has added a legal services function and are now meeting the various needs of more than 400 survivors annually.
The Coalition seeks an Executive Director to serve as the public face of the organization, galvanize advocacy efforts, and lead them through its next stage of growth. Reporting to, working closely with, and helping to lead the Board of Directors, the Executive Director will drive efforts to define strategic priorities and will have ultimate responsibility for the articulation and implementation of the Coalition’s vision and mission.
In addition, the Executive Director will be a vocal and active advocate for survivors, representing the organization and promoting its mission within community and throughout the city and state.
The Executive Director will oversee and lead all operations, including supervision of the Coalition’s administration team, oversight of the Coalition’s finances, advancement of resource development, and program innovation, development, and implementation.
As the professional leader, this person will foster a welcoming and safe work environment for all, and ensure that the Coalition’s services are both inclusive and hold systems accountable for the cultural, racial, and other prejudicial barriers survivors face when seeking safety and justice.
