About CNP


The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is making investments to connect individuals to the resources and services they need to prevent future crime and re-victimization in order to make a strong impact on public safety over a long period of time.

In partnership with Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and the Institute for State and Local Government, DANY is investing in a program to recruit and train Community Navigators who will focus on working in East Harlem with youth (ages 14 to 21) who are at risk of becoming involved in the justice system, and with people affected by domestic violence.

Ultimately, the network of navigators will expand to other Manhattan neighborhoods and will also work with youth and adults who are involved in the justice system, other victims of crime, and people returning to neighborhoods from incarceration.
