Position: Office Manager
Agency: Atlanta/Fulton County Pre-Arrest Diversion Initiative
Classification: Full Time

The Atlanta/Fulton County Pre-Arrest Diversion (PAD) Initiative Office Manager is responsible for coordinating agency operations, managing day-to-day operations of the PAD office, managing finances including basic bookkeeping, disbursements and vendor contracts; managing Human Resources, and maintaining office supplies and equipment.
The primary goal of the PAD Initiative is to redirect people out of the criminal justice system who would be better served by social services and other community based supports. Specially trained police officers who have probable cause to make an arrest and believe that the offense is primarily due to mental illness, drug and alcohol use/misuse, or extreme poverty can offer diversion to the Initiative instead of arrest. The hallmark of the program will be intensive care coordination that offers client centered, strength-based case management utilizing a harm reduction approach.
