The Urban Resource Institute (URI), a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization established in 1980, operates shelter, legal and job training programs for domestic violence victims, residential and vocational programs for individuals with developmental disabilities, and residential programs for homeless families. With a $73 million annual budget with over 500 staff, URI promotes safety, justice, health, and independence for vulnerable individuals and families residing in New York City.
The Social Worker is responsible for direct service provision to shelter residents. Direct services include hotline assessments, case management services, individual counseling, group facilitation and counseling, advocacy services, referrals and follow-up, mental health assessments and referrals, and coordination of medical and financial services. The Social Worker must demonstrate sensitivity to issues related to domestic violence, and be able to coordinate linkages to community agencies to assist clients with public benefits, permanent housing, and vocational and educational services. URI acknowledges that our clients reflect a diverse group of constituents in terms of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, socio-economic class and place of birth. Given this, the Social Worker in conjunction with all shelter staff are responsible for promoting cultural competency throughout all DV programming. In doing so, this position assists in the program’s strategic efforts to ensure the provision of client-centered, trauma-informed quality services to survivors and their children.
