Social Work Program

At the Assigned Counsel Program we have two Social Workers on staff. Our social workers are available to assist in many areas on any criminal case. Social Workers are able to link clients to Mental Health & Substance Abuse treatment, assist with housing, help with education and employment, link a client with community service, aid a client in obtaining NYS benefits, and any other areas a client may be struggling in. If you are an attorney and would like to request a social worker for one of your cases simply place a note in DefenderData and a social worker will be assigned to assist you.
