Family Focused Outreach Worker
(1 year full time maternity leave contract with benefits – bargaining unit position at CTYS)
This is an exciting opportunity to be a member of YJ Mental Health ACCESS Team, supporting youth and families involved with the youth justice system. YJ MH ACCESS provides mental health assessments and brief mental health service to youth and families referred from Toronto probation and mental health court workers. The family worker will focus specifically on the engagement of family to improve family functioning by affecting change in the family system. Many of our youth justice clients are being referred to services after a family breakdown has occurred and the youth find themselves without the family support that can be a positive factor in their reintegration. The family focused intervention would be based on a community outreach model. The family worker would meet with the family in the community and/or family home. Flexibility is required to work some evenings to accommodate family schedules. This is a brief service model.
