When you join The Home for Little Wanderers, you join a team of professionals dedicated to creating better, brighter futures for kids.
For over 200 years, The Home for Little Wanderers has helped build stable lives and hopeful tomorrows for vulnerable children and their families. Our 25+ community-based and residential programs serve thousands of at-risk youths from birth to age 26. Many of these children have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma, or a disrupted family life. As the oldest child welfare agency in America, we provide them with safe surroundings, permanent loving relationships, and a secure path toward a better, brighter future.
The Child & Family Counseling Center seeks Clinicians to work out of their Roslindale site.
Under the direction of the Program Director, the Clinician will provide case management services; act as a liaison with collateral agencies and programs; establish and maintain relationship services that support children’s and family’s growth. Act as an advocate for families, teach parents to advocate for themselves and their children. Help families develop the skills needed to navigate the social service system. Utilize treatment modalities that are consistent with program goals and that best fit with clients’ age and treatment needs, including play/expressive therapy, group therapy and family therapy.
The Clinical Coordinator will supervise and evaluate Master’s level, licensed, and Bachelor’s level clinicians as well as student interns while also providing individual and group supervision and provide on-going guidance and training to clinical staff.
We are committed to excellence in diversity, equity, and inclusion, while simultaneously creating a culture that supports those values. We believe the differences we bring enhance our ability to provide exceptional service and care to diverse children, families, and communities. Moreover, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging align with our values and our mission to help vulnerable children and their families build permanent, positive change.
