Do you have a desire to help children in your community?

Do you need a job that will help you in meeting your professional development and career goals?

Has the pandemic affected your ability to find employment?

If you answered yes to one or more of those questions, our Crisis Respite homes may be the answer to your needs and those of your community! Crisis Respite offers children and adolescents a safe place when they are in need of care. The ages served in our homes is 6-12 years old. These children are experiencing isolation, and often struggling with virtual learning, and maintaining schedules. These children are often highly traumatized and need compassionate care from those providing services. These children are learning to manage their mental health or behavioral health needs, and benefit from people like you, who are patient and kind. This is a direct service, and we are currently hiring full time, part time, and as needed for shift coverage in several different counties.

Do you qualify as a Direct Support Provider?

Direct support providers have a high school diploma or GED, and at least 21 years old. Once hired, we provide training on how to support the needs of these individuals, safety strategies, medication administration, HIPAA (confidentiality), CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation), First Aid, seizure management, and several others that will assist you in your professional development in this field.

As a direct service provider how do we protect you?

Personal protective equipment provided to the homes include gloves, masks, face shields, and we keep the homes supplied with hand sanitizer and Lysol. Visitors are restricted at this time as well. The state does require a mask for working with the children and in our homes. All homes are provided regular cleaning, and we adhere to strict protocols for admitting new individuals to the home as well as all staff entering for their shift which include strategies such as temperature checks, and hand washing.
