Focus Forward is looking for a Full Time Social Worker

Focus Forward is looking for a Full Time Social Worker for our Planned Re-Entry Program working on supporting leadership development and helping reduce recidivism through effective programming and case management–the vision is that youth will ‘re-enter’ the community with the support needed to avoid continued involvement with the system. This person will work as part of the Focus Forward PREP Team which works simultaneously with youth and their families (this social worker provides service to the youth while Family Support Specialists work with the families–and frequently all staff comes together with the family).

The position is open until filled and we hope to hold interviews in January 2017.
