JOB TITLE: Solution-Based Casework (SBC) Supervisor 


LOCATION: Brooklyn 

REPORTS TO: Hybrid – 2-3 days in-office (Downtown Brooklyn)

SALARY: $67,000-$70,000



The Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization, established in 1994, to provide culturally and linguistically competent, trauma-informed social services. Our mission is to empower immigrants and refugees with the tools they need to successfully acclimate to the world around them and become active participants in their communities. While our doors are open to all, AAFSC has developed cultural and linguistic expertise in serving members of NYC’s Arab, Middle Eastern, North African, Muslim, and South Asian (AMENAMSA) immigrant and refugee communities. AAFSC promotes mental and physical well-being and community power. We ensure families are knowledgeable about their rights and equipped to participate in civic society with confidence and security. We help prevent child abuse, and work to end domestic- and gender-based violence. We provide the tools for learners of every age to succeed. Finally, we help lift up the voices and needs of under-represented communities and champion gender-, racial-, restorative-, and immigrant justice.



The Solution Based Casework (SBC) Supervisor will be accountable for providing day-to-day support, leadership, and general supervision to their assigned unit. The SBC Supervisor is responsible for maintaining adherence to the Family Support Solution Based Casework (SBC) Model for their assigned unit.  


The Solution Based Casework (SBC) practice model is based on three theoretical foundations: family life cycle theory, relapse prevention/CBT theory, and solution-focused family therapy. Partnership with families in each and every case is critical to reducing risks and solutions should utilize prevention skills to achieve those goals. AAFSC serves families city-wide through this model. The Supervisor will effectively support and supervise a trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and linguistically appropriate community-based preventive program that focuses on providing counseling and clinical interventions to at-risk children and families. Supervisors will assist in the overall functioning of the program with the goal of reducing the number of children who enter into the foster care system. The most successful candidate will be one who has strong administrative and management skills including strategic planning, resource allocation, and coordination of government agency requirements. He or she will be organized, professional, and detail oriented, will thrive under pressure, and be willing to work on multiple projects. A commitment to immigrant, refugee and low-income communities will also be essential for success in this role.
