NLADA - Community Partnership Liaison, DE
Because the quality of justice in America should not depend on how much money a person has, NLADA leads a broad network of advocates on the front lines to advance justice and expand opportunity for all by promoting excellence in the delivery of legal services for people who cannot afford counsel. This new VISTA project, Defending Communities in Service, will build sustainable community relationships and data systems and practices that allow participating public defender offices to more holistically support communities in need. VISTAs will build capacity within their host organizations focused on two separate tracks of service: you will serve as the driving force connecting their hosting Public Defender office to other justice system stakeholders, community organizations and service providers, strategic leaders, and to other relevant local National Service operations. These connections will help the public defenders to more effectively provide wraparound services to their clients and to more clearly understand and communicate the overall local services landscape upon which their clients rely. All NLADA VISTA project members will explore opportunities to utilize technology and automation to create communication and data-sharing channels between public defenders and human services organizations designed to last beyond the period of their projects, with minimal maintenance required.

Member Duties : Delaware’s Office of Defense Services (ODS) serves numerous diverse communities – each with different goals and challenges. ODS is seeking to hire a Community Partnership Liaison (CPL) to strengthen our current community connections and develop new ones. The CPL will work under the guidance of our Community Engagement Specialist to ascertain our community’s policy desires and ensure ODS’ efforts are in line with those hopes. To help advocate for those goals, the CPL will identify voices and stories we can amplify. Success will depend on relationship and trust building, so candidates must be comfortable with the social aspect of this position and have some experience in community organizing. The CPL’s work hours will be flexible and may require attending community events on nights and weekends. ODS is a walk or short drive from many great places to live in Wilmington, but it’s totally feasible to live in Philadelphia –as much of our staff do– and commute by train or car.
