Our mission is to protect and promote the well-being of children. We work with children and their families to help them succeed and break neglect, abuse, and trauma cycles. We do this through health, safety, and educational outreach. Our programs help children and parents develop successful skills in their families, schools, and workplaces. We work to create and restore healthy parent-child relationships and pledge to serve through advocacy and community engagement. Stronger families start here!

We treat customers, partners, and each other with respect and strive to always build positive working relationships. Quality, competence, and courageous service are important in all we do. Our employees live up to these values and are key to our mission. For our amazing team, we offer rewarding work and opportunities for growth and advancement!



As a Clinical Specialist, you apply an ecological approach to family and individual therapy. Your emphasis is on serving families of children from birth through age 18 through both crisis intervention and mental health services. Based on standardized assessments and treatment goal-planning, you provide intervention and treatment services that incorporate a family systems model. This model is based on human development, cognitive-behavioral, and attachment theories. You emphasize solution-focused interventions embedded within the context of the community, external systems, and culture of the family.

You facilitate strategies that help all members of the family improve interactions and comfort levels within larger community settings. When needed, you act as a liaison or consultant between our program and other agencies. You also advocate and negotiate for needed services and support. Occasionally, you are asked to give educational presentations to staff, other professionals, and community groups regarding the mental health needs of children. You also provide mental health consultation to our other prevention programs. Working to build stronger families by breaking cycles of trauma, abuse, and neglect is highly rewarding for you!

Licensing as a licensed specialist clinical social worker (LSCSW) is preferred but multiple factors will be taken into consideration. Experience in home-based service delivery, play therapy, infant mental health, and working with multidisciplinary teams would be highly desirable.
