ABOUT FAMILY & CHILDREN'S PLACE

Family & Children's Place is an equal opportunity nonprofit organization that strives to keep families intact, and provide children and family members the emotional support necessary to maintain family stability. Since 1883, we have served as a critical presence in Louisville providing help to our most vulnerable citizens -- children, whose lives we've often saved from abuse and neglect. We are here because we believe in this city, and we believe in the promise and power of working together to make life richer. Our goal is to improve our society, to help children become strong again, to defend those in need, and above all, to contribute to the health of our city's future.

Our continued success depends on the recruitment, selection, and retention of the most qualified personnel. We search for employees who are looking to make a career out of caring and are willing to commit to providing the highest quality of service to our clients.

In addition, you provide crisis intervention and information that will benefit the individual you're working with. When needed, you offer referral services, so your clients are aware of the different resources that are available to them. You approach each case with compassion and empathy to ensure the children and families you work with feel comfortable around you. Being able to make a direct, positive impact on the lives of your clients brings you great fulfillment and motivates you to put forth your best effort each day in this social work position!
