Job Type: Fulltime
JOB DESCRIPTION: Parent Partner
As a Parent Partner, in Hanford, California, you will use your empathy, respect, and listening skills to help parents become the best they can be. While you spend time providing peer support and helping families navigate community systems and resources, you will be impacting the entire family. You will contribute to the growth of the entire family. You will also be directly helping families thrive.
As a Parent Partner, you’ll work as part of a team providing treatment to youth and families with a youth and family counselor, a family social worker, clinician, and program manager. You’ll be the parent’s advocate and will help families gain the skills and tools needed to confidently and independently parent. This is a role where no one day is alike as no two parent’s needs are alike. Some days you may be helping with budgeting or establishing house rules, while other days you may be providing support during court proceedings, IEP’s or family meetings. Your flexible schedule allows you to meet parents when they most need you, which may mean starting your day before their working hours and ending early, or starting your day later and meeting them during dinnertime. At times when you have resistant parents, you’ll use your relationship, shared life experience, and interpersonal skills to gain their engagement and commitment.
You will be part of a team that supports children and families in rewarding events that take place occasionally during evenings and/or weekends.
Aspiranet supports your success at each step. As a Parent Partner, you could embark on a path of career and personal growth. With desire and commitment, you can gain additional skills and advance into a supervisory role.
Aspiranet offers a competitive salary, an exceptional team-based environment, and a great benefits package that includes employer-paid healthcare, dental, vision and wellness care. Aspiranet provides the opportunity to make an important difference in your community.
If you’ve had real-life experience as a parent or primary caregiver and have successfully navigated mental health, probation, child welfare, special education or regional center services for your child, and have received your high school diploma or GED, we encourage you to apply.
