Easterseals Louisiana (ESL) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day. Established in 1951, our organization supports over 8,600 individuals (whom we refer to as Participants) with a variety of disabilities. A leading provider of disability services, ESL has physical locations in 8 regions of Louisiana and our array of programs include support coordination (case management) for children, adults and elderly participants, a wide range of behavioral health and housing services, early intervention services for infants and toddlers, and a school setting called The Chartwell Center in New Orleans.
Because we support so many participants with a range of needs, we have learned that disability looks different for everyone, and it is our goal to help our participants thrive and live their lives to their fullest potential. ESL believes that everyone deserves opportunities to be active and productive members of their communities. We are seeking mission-driven individuals to join our team, who will help us deliver a life of independence, relationships, and meaning to our participants.
HIRING BONUS-This position also includes a $500 sign on bonus! $200 at hire, $100 after 60 days, $100 after 120 days, $100 at 6 months. Must be employed at the time of pay out and if you leave prior to the full payout, the signing bonus will be deducted from your last pay. Offer ends 3/31/2023
Our Support Coordinators who serve the OCDD (Office of Citizens with Developmental Disabilities) population, serve a caseload of about 35-45 participants. These participants live in their homes and communities and receive support (which can be physical, medical, educational, or vocational) to assist them to remain in their desired settings. The primary role of the Support Coordinator is to plan, organize, implement, and monitor the in-home and community-based services and support the participant receives.
All new hires complete an initial training program of about 6 weeks. During this time you will learn how to plan, schedule, and coordinate services to meet our participants' needs. Learning about the OCDD service system and requirements, making monthly calls, quarterly visits, and annual CPOCs (Comprehensive Plan of Care) are all responsibilities our SCs have, along with maintaining any pertinent medical and health information for your assigned participants. Support Coordinators are also responsible for the support of participants throughout emergent situations and all public emergencies including weather related evacuations. While this position is a hybrid office and remote work, for the first 90 days you will be required to be in the office full-time M-F days. This role requires providing support in a home and community-based setting, so it is vital that you have a reliable form of transportation.

Bachelors/Masters in Social Work or Nursing or Human Service related field or Bachelors in Liberal Arts or Gen Studies w/ at least 16 hrs in one of these fields (psych, edu, counseling, social services, socio, philosophy, family & participant sciences, criminal justice, rehab services, substance abuse treatment, gerontology, and or voc rehab) 2 yrs of paid post degree experience preferred.
