Tides Family Services | Pawtucket, RI
Tides Family Services is currently hiring for the Youth Transition Program. The target population for the program is male/female adolescents from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds experiencing a wide range of behavioral, social, health/mental health, educational/vocational, and family problems. These youth often are impulsive, aggressive, and in conflict, and they have an intense need for structure, supervision, safety, and predictability. The youth are at risk for probation violation, continuing offending behaviors, sentence/return to the Rhode Island Training School, and/or engaging in unsafe behavior for themselves and/or their communities. They also are in need of positive interaction with adults on a social, educational, and interpersonal level; and need positive success on the neighborhood/community level.
Caseworkers are responsible for providing intensive case management services to an assigned caseload of youth and their families in the context of a two –three person team. This position includes evening and weekend coverage and an ability to work collaboratively with a supervisor, team members, and collaborative partners in and outside of the agency.
Full-time employee benefits include individual medical and dental plan or family medical and dental plan, and a fully paid retirement plan and a fully paid life insurance plan.
All other benefits are listed on our website, www.tidesfs.org.
Tides was founded in 1983 by Brother Michael Reis, a DeLaSalle Christian Brother, with $15,000 seed money. The Lasallian mission is to serve the neediest and poorest families in the community. Brother Michael realized interventions needed to happen before kids were placed in out-of –home care. He founded a much-needed “agency without walls” where outreach workers and clinical social workers meet with and provide critical services to youth in their homes, neighborhoods and schools. Today, we provide 24/7 services 365 days a year through 120 staff and an $8 million budget.
