    Family Advocate,

    Family Defense Practice

    Manhattan & Queens, NY

    The Center for Family Representation Inc. (CFR) is an award-winning, innovative law and policy organization that serves primarily Black and Brown families and youth in Queens and Manhattan with an interdisciplinary legal defense model that serves more than 2400 clients every year. CFR was originally founded in 2002 to dramatically change the trajectory of indigent parents being prosecuted by the City’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) and our goal is to reduce the harm of family separation and prevent or minimize the time any child spends in foster care. CFR provides interdisciplinary family defense to parents charged by ACS with a model that was unique at our founding and that is now being replicated nationally: we assign every client an attorney and a social work staff member, and teams have the support of parent advocates, who are parents with direct personal experience losing children to foster care and safely reunifying their families. CFR was the first agency in the country to integrate parents with lived experience into legal teams. In 2015, CFR expanded its practice to provide legal and social work services to parents in immigration, civil legal services and criminal defense matters.

     

    CFR’s Juvenile Justice Practice provides holistic, interdisciplinary defense to youth being prosecuted in family court in Delinquency proceedings and in Adolescent Offender removal cases that originate in Youth Parts in Supreme Court. CFR’s Community Advocacy Project represents parents during a child protective investigation (prior to court involvement) and assists parents in clearing their names from state maltreatment records. We annually train over 500 practitioners in the city, state and around the country on strategies to promote family preservation and interdisciplinary representation and we provide community based “Know Your Rights” presentations to parents, youth and service providers. We advocate at the city, state and national level for policies that promote parent engagement and justice for youth and families.

     

    CFR has an immediate opening for a Family Advocate in our Manhattan and Queens offices. Due to COVID-19 we are currently working remotely and initial training and direct client work will continue virtually until we have more information from New York City about plans for reopening court and ACS.

     

    Family Advocates are members of the social work staff whose primary responsibilities will include:

     

    • Working collaboratively with attorneys representing parents in Child Protective (Article 10) and Termination of Parental Rights proceedings in Family Court. Teams are comprised of attorneys, social work staff, paralegals and parent advocates (parents who have successfully reunified with their children). Objectives of the teams include shortening lengths of stay for children in foster care, promoting quality visiting arrangements and ensuring that families receive services that are well-tailored to expediting safe and lasting reunification.
    • Providing direct social work support and advocacy to clients
    • Conducting intake and client interviews, assess clients’ needs and goals, and ensure clients are engaged in appropriate and meaningful service plans
    • Maintaining contact with service providers, and advocating for clients at ACS and foster care agency conferences.
    • Advocating for clients at ACS and foster care agency conferences
    • Participating in team meetings as well as administrative meetings within CFR
