Womankind works with survivors of gender-based violence to rise above trauma and build a path to healing. We bring critical resources and deep cultural competency to help Asian communities find refuge, recovery and renewal.
Womankind’s Community Programs provides comprehensive direct services that support the recovery of survivors and their children from domestic violence (DV), human trafficking (HT), and sexual violence (SV). We engage communities and raise awareness on DV, HT, and SV, provide support via our 24-hour multilingual helpline, ensure all clients receive prompt and professional services, and provide therapeutic support that encourages self- sufficiency and empowerment.
Womankind’s Legal Program, launched in 2011, is an integral component of our work in helping survivors gain independence and self-sufficiency, thus reducing their vulnerability to abuse and exploitation. Combining survivor-centered and culturally responsive legal work with our holistic approach to client empowerment and advocacy, Womankind’s Legal Program has represented clients in various forms of immigration relief, including VAWA, BSW, U Visas, and T Visas. Since our expansion of the Legal Program in January 2018, we now also provide legal support with orders of protection, custody, visitation, child support, and uncontested divorces. We seek a compassionate, dedicated, team-oriented, and goal-oriented manager to take a lead role in supporting our legal team as well as development of our legal program.
The Manager will have oversight of legal staff, legal services, program development, pro bono project, grants management/reporting, and outreach efforts. The Manager reports to the Director of Community Programs and is responsible for implementing Womankind’s mission through legal services.
The Manager will work closely with all programs in the Community Programs department, including 5 remote sites to ensure holistic legal services and programmatic excellence. In addition, they will coordinate with other agency departments such as Development, Finance, Operations and Volunteer Engagement. The manager will serve as Womankind’s spokesperson in external meetings, training, conferences, and panels when needed.
