Family & Children's Place is an equal opportunity nonprofit organization that strives to keep families intact, secure needed housing, 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 and southern Indiana 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 meet the needs of our society, to support children and families as they work through the challenges they face, to defend those in need, and above all, to contribute to the health of the areas of southern Indiana and Louisville that we serve.

Our continued success depends on the recruitment, selection, and retention of qualified and motivated 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. Our employees are as passionate about the work they do as we are, which is why we strive to foster a supportive work culture that gives them the space to build successful careers.


As a professional in family therapy, you play an essential role in providing counseling services to our clients. You work directly with children, families, and adults who are dealing with trauma that has impacted their lives. Services are typically delivered to clients at one of our agency sites within the community or at a school, and some individuals will travel to clients' homes to provide services. When you deliver counseling services, you utilize trauma-informed, culturally competent, evidence-based practices and policies that provide the best possible outcome for your clients. Having a job where you get to make a difference in the lives of others through family therapy and counseling brings you great fulfillment, which is why you love what you do!

  • Willingness to take a drug test, TB screening, and fingerprint screening upon hire
  • Full COVID vaccination plus booster is required
  • Bilingual in Spanish would be a plus.
  • Experience working with survivors of domestic violence is preferred but multiple factors will be taken into consideration.

Are you compassionate and empathetic toward others? Do you enjoy helping people? If so, you might just be perfect for this counseling position with our nonprofit organization!
