Profile

Comunilife is one of New York City>s premier providers of housing, mental health, and HIV/AIDS services. Our programs benefit more than 2,500 people each year – helping them overcome challenges related to extreme poverty; chronic homelessness; serious behavioral and medical issues; and linguistic and acculturation barriers. Our staff members enjoy the benefits of working with a supportive team of supervisors and peers; of receiving in-depth training and ongoing opportunities for professional development; and of being part of an organization that truly recognizes, celebrates, and promotes personal and cultural strengths. We are looking for an experienced, passionate, dynamic, and highly skilled bi-lingual creative arts therapist in dance to join Life is Precious™, our nationally recognized suicide prevention program for Latina teenagers, to provide creative arts therapy including intake assessments and treatment planning. Life is Precious™, with programs in the Bronx and Brooklyn, began in the Bronx in 2008 in response to alarming statistics about the growing rate of suicide attempts among Latina teenagers, ages 11-17. Participants are referred by Comunilife>s VIDA Guidance Center (Bronx) and Woodhull Hospital (Brooklyn) where participants also receive clinical services. Building on Latino cultural norms, this unique program provides a place where adolescents and their families can go for the broad range of services they need.
