Hunter College is pleased to partner with the Manhattan DA’s Office adding to our already extensive engagement with the East Harlem community. With funding from them Hunter will play a key role in this important community based initiative by planning and developing the Community Navigator Program at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. This program connects individuals in the East Harlem community to resources and services and expertly navigates individuals who have unmet service needs in the community, linking them to vital, quality services that they want or need but may not currently accessing. The focus of our work is with those who have been affected by domestic violence and with young people (ages 14 to 21) who are at risk of becoming involved in the justice system.
