WCS is a nonprofit human services organization that works with individuals to overcome adversity. We believe that all services should be person-centered, strength-based, trauma-informed, and culturally competent. We seek compassionate, highly motivated, talented candidates to join our dedicated staff.
We seek Care Coordinators to work within our youth programs. Generally speaking, the Care Coordinators are the primary contact person/facilitator of the care team. Care Coordinators usually support about 8 to 12 individuals and their families at any one time, maintaining a minimum of weekly contact by phone and/or in-person visits. This position is responsible for the delivery of service and support for the people we serve. Care Coordinators meet with individuals, families, service providers, and other team supports that assist the individual through their specific program to efficiently and effectively address their needs and work toward sustainability.
Care Coordinators monitor the provision and quality of services provided to the individual and are the liaisons when new services/resources are sought or developed. Care Coordinators coordinate and facilitate team meetings to develop and modify care plans. The position is also responsible for seeking out community resources and ensuring the individualized plan of care is up to date.
Care Coordinators schedule appointments and provide or make arrangements for transportation. If appropriate, Care Coordinators attend Court proceedings and other appointments in the community to provide support and advocate for the individual we are serving. Care Coordinators are expected to meet and work with the individuals we support in their homes and communities.
Currently we are recruiting for the following Care Coordinator positions:
- CCS (Comprehensive Community Services) – Youth
- Wraparound — Youth
- REACH — Youth
- CORE — Youth
- Bakari Youth Residential Care Center
