Join us as a Trauma Focused Staff Therapist/Domestic Violence Program Coordinator



The Crime Victims Treatment Center was established in 1977 as a community response to a sexual assault that took place in Morningside Heights. CVTC was the first rape crisis program formed in New York State, and remains on the forefront of progressive healing services for survivors of all types of violence.

Our services, including trauma focused individual and group therapy, advocacy, crisis intervention, complementary therapy and others, are offered completely free of charge. These services not only allow individuals to heal from the effects of violence and trauma, but are also instrumental in thwarting the cycle of interpersonal and intergenerational violence, one survivor at a time and on a community wide scale. In response to the need for our services, which have more than doubled since 2007, CVTC made the decision to transition from a Mount Sinai hospital-based program to self-governance. After extensive and careful consideration, we concluded that this is the surest way to sustain our mission and expand our programming by up to 50% within the next five years, with a focus on providing services to the most vulnerable populations of survivors including those who identify as LGBTQ, non-English speaking communities, d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing survivors, incarcerated victims of sexual violence and those who are uninsured or underemployed.
