|Title:||Rising Strong Program Coordinator - FT|
|Dept:||23 - Rising Strong|
The Rising Strong program is a collaboration between Catholic Charities and Empire Health Foundation. Based on proven models in California and Oregon, Rising Strong will focus on serving families who are at risk for separation due to parental substance abuse by providing safe housing, substance abuse treatment, case management, and other supportive wraparound services. By serving whole families, our aim is to reduce trauma in children, decrease the rates of foster care placements, and remove barriers that traditionally prevent parents from succeeding in substance abuse treatment. We walk alongside and support vulnerable families as they change their stories.
This position will assist in overseeing the day-to-day operations of Rising Strong. This will include maintaining staff coverage, providing staff supervision, serving as a liaison between the program and external partners, responding to emergencies after business hours, and providing skilled, compassionate services to our families as they seek to change their stories. Availability for working nights and weekends will be expected.
