The mission of CASES is to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success in the community.
- We are committed to helping people—regardless of their past choices, present struggles, or future obstacles—to build the capacity and courage to change their lives.
- We tailor our services to each individual’s unique needs, risks, and strengths and believe the most effective programs are evidence-based, family-focused, and trauma-informed.
- We are committed to engaging the community by leveraging partnerships and resources to maximize our clients’ opportunities for success.
We recognize that each CASES staff member is critical. We are a team strengthened by our diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and talents and united by a common purpose. We are determined to continuously enhance our knowledge and skills, evaluate our results, and learn from our successes and failures.
Our impact on the community:
We believe public safety is best protected through alternatives to incarceration that combine accountability and support with empowerment and opportunity. We are committed—through continuous innovation and the strategic disruption of ineffective responses to crime, addiction, and mental illness—to creating solutions for some of the city’s most difficult public safety and public health challenges
CASES' youth programs aim to help New York City's criminal legal system-involved young people, ranging in age from 13-24, to lead productive, crime-free lives. Our approach is distinguished by individualized case management, evidence-based programming, and group activities that build positive peer associations. For many, this is the first time in their lives that they are participating in activities that help them set personal goals and develop the skills they need to reach them. As a result, hundreds of our youth participants have enrolled in secondary, post-secondary, and vocational institutions, acquired their High School Equivalency Diplomas, found unsubsidized employment, and ended their involvement in the criminal legal system.
CASES’ youth programs operates a High School Equivalency Program for participants ages 17-27. We aim to provide young people who have been disconnected from education a chance to reconnect through creative and thoughtful lesson plans.
We are looking for a teacher who is interested in creating a supportive learning environment where students can thrive and experience success.
