The Lindencroft Program is part of the Caring Together network of providers. It is a 15 bed intensive group home for females ages 12 – 18. Youth at Lindencroft have complex mental health, medical, cognitive, and behavioral challenges. Many of the youths have families struggling with a range of issues including substance abuse, domestic violence and mental health concerns, as well as economic stressors. Some youth have family actively engaged and others will be without an identified family resource or life-long connection.
The Lindencroft Residential Department seeks a Direct Care Worker who can embody and uphold our values on a daily basis. This person must love working with adolescent-aged children, be energetic, positive, disciplined, have excellent boundaries and will thrive in a fast-paced environment. The Direct Care Worker we are seeking will take pride in working with a team who strives to make everyday a little bit better for our group of teens.
