Description
Nexus-Kindred Family Healing seeks experienced Social Worker to provide support and services to relatives caring for youth in the St. Cloud and surrounding area. When a relative cares for a child or sibling group removed from their homes, the advantages are tremendous for the children - but the challenges these relatives face can often be large.
This specialist position will focus on networking with community to reach relatives caring for youth either formally or informally, connecting these families with needed services and information while providing direct support to the children and families as needed.

At Nexus-Kindred Family Healing, we provide a continuum of services, from foster care to community-based services, to give children and families the tools they need to build successful relationships outside of treatment. We’re part of Nexus Family Healing, a national nonprofit mental health organization that restores hope for thousands of children and families who come to us for outpatient/community mental health services, foster care and adoption, and residential treatment. For over 45 years, our network of agencies has used innovative, personalized approaches to heal trauma, break cycles of harm, and reshape futures. We believe every child is worth it — and every family matters.

Responsibilities:

Provides supervision to foster and adoptive homes assigned to caseload; provides homes with support and assures that the homes adhere to agency policies and state and federal laws.
Supervise the placement and ongoing support of youth placed in foster homes, regular ongoing communication with families, recruiting new foster parents, re-licensing existing families, conducting foster care training, and maintaining appropriate documentation and files to support the services that are provided to families in Minnesota.
Qualifications:

Requires a bachelor's degree preferably in Social Work, Psychology or Human/Social Services related field, a minimum of two (2) years related experience in child welfare (post bachelor's degree). 
Requires a MN Social Work license (LSW, LGSW, LICSW or LISW) and valid MN Driver's license and auto insurance coverage required.
Must have vehicle capable of safely transporting clients.
The ideal candidate will be able to work independently, exhibit a high degree of ethical conduct, integrity, and confidentiality, demonstrate strong oral and written communication skills, and be able to interact with and appreciate people from diverse cultural, social, economic and religious backgrounds.
Benefits:
We provide competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits, including: four weeks paid time off in the first year of employment, multiple options for health insurance coverage, holiday pay, as well as no-cost life insurance and short/long-term disability insurance.

Our Workplace Values:
At Nexus Family Healing, our ICARE shared values (Innovation, Compassion, Agility, Responsiveness, and Excellence) are the
foundation for our actions in the workplace. They define how we behave with each other, our clients, our partners, and our communities.  Every interaction we have with each other will be met with understanding, kindness, and helpful action.
