Job Summary

Over the last few years, our level of programming has increased exponentially.  However, we haven’t added any extra administrative support during these years. The increased programming demands have taxed out our Program Coordinators as they try to balance their program components while also providing care, support, empathy, and wisdom on a case-by-case basis to our families in need. We are creating this position to provide support for the two coordinators who work with our children (ages 0-17) and their families.
