JOB OPENING: NEIGHBORS IMMIGRATION CLINIC / CRCKY PART-TIME CHILD THERAPIST (20 HOURS A WEEK)
Neighbors Immigration Clinic and CRCKY seek to hire a bilingual (Spanish and English) therapist to work on-site with children and teens clients from both agencies. The therapist will work with children and teens who have experienced immigration-related trauma, whether due to causes leading them to leave their country of origin, the journey itself, their adaptation to life in Kentucky, or exposure to substance abuse and domestic violence. The therapist must be comfortable doing play therapy, family therapy, and group therapy sessions. A trauma-informed therapy background is a preference, although not a requirement. Neighbors Immigration clinic will provide onsite therapy space and administrative supervision; clinical supervision will be offered off-site. Therapists must be willing to work evenings and weekends if necessary.
We are a diverse coalition united to provide community support to Kentucky families negatively impacted by immigration enforcement. Our volunteer efforts focus on Community Resources, Detention Services, and Legal Services. We provide help to individuals and families adversely impacted by immigration enforcement through assistance and referral to other agencies to address the need for housing, food, transportation, information, and other goods and services, in an effort to provide temporary relief and strengthen healthy family connections.
During Covid, we are also providing emergency rent and utilities assistance, as well as food deliveries, for immigrant families with Covid.
