Description
CUCS operates two Single Stops on Riker’s Island. Our goal is to reduce recidivism rates at Riker’s Island by assisting low income New Yorkers in taking initial steps towards self sufficiency. We address basic concerns onsite that may otherwise complicate successful re-entry into the community when released: acquiring benefits, addressing outstanding civil legal concerns and inaccurate documentation regarding criminal histories. We are a diverse team who are hard working, client centered and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

The Benefits Advisor will assist sentenced inmates at Rikers Island in meeting their most basic needs of self-sufficiency, screen for interest and eligibility for public benefits, including paper and electronic application completion with some post-release planning ensuring successful re-entry into the community. Additional responsibilities include screening for other services provided by the program.

Skills
HS diploma and at least 2 years of related experience required, BA preferred. Strong organizational skills, ability to market program and work collaboratively with other service providers both on and off island.

Notes
PLEASE NOTE - Masters’ level applicants will NOT be considered. This is not a supervisory position. Candidates must be able to pass New York City Department of Corrections clearance process for employment.
