Job Description


Support & Services Specialist (Full Time)


Triangle Region, NC

Mix of remote work and office work available


Healing Justice is a small, dynamic, and rapidly growing national nonprofit organization that uses restorative justice and justice reform to address the individual and collective harm caused by wrongful convictions. We serve all who have been directly harmed in these cases: crime victims, survivors, and their families, as well as the innocent who were wrongly convicted and their families. We also offer programs for others affected by these cases: jurors, judges, police, prosecutors, victim advocates, and other justice and social service providers. You can learn more about our work at www.healingjusticeproject.org and www.survivorservices.org


The support and services specialist will support all of Healing Justice’s programs by directly supporting crime victims and survivors, exonerated individuals, and family members of both. The specialist will provide trauma-informed care and support to individuals and groups by assisting with effective program planning and resource development. In this role, the specialist will help to expand our Healing Programs by increasing our individual and group peer support offerings, developing mental health and wellness tools and resources, and supporting restorative justice activities at both the national and local levels. Additionally, the specialist will be assigned to assist in various ways with federally funded and privately funded grant projects. This position will report to Healing Justice’s director of healing programs.
