The Position
Positions in this series provide care, training, and treatment to children and adolescents with behavioral and emotional disturbances in a 24-hour/7-day a week treatment home setting.
The Nevada DIVISION OF CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES (DCFS) is recruiting Treatment Home Supervisor to be located in Reno, NV. This position provides care, training and treatment to children and adolescents with behavioral and emotional disturbances in a 24 hour/7 day a week treatment home setting. The Family Learning Homes serve (FLH) children between 6 - 17 years of age. Youth served by FLH are designated as Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED) and have experienced multiple failed placements. Youth placed with FLH exhibit significant behavioral challenges including physical and verbal aggression, non-compliance, challenges to authority figures, school problems (academic and behavioral), peer and social difficulties, and family issues. Quite often FLH is accessed as a final measure before a youth is placed in a higher level residential treatment facility often out of state. THS's provide oversight of the daily operations of their assigned treatment home ensuring adequate staff to client coverage, compliance with treatment model implementation, coaching and training of staff and all issues and tasks related to the functioning of the home. THS's are responsible for completing the admission process with youth entering their home and updating treatment plans, writing progress notes, and discharge summaries.
The Nevada DIVISION OF CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES (DCFS), together in genuine partnership with families, communities and other governmental agencies, provides support and services to assist Nevada's children and families in reaching their full human potential. DCFS recognizes that Nevada's families are our future and children, youth and families thrive when they live in safe permanent settings, experience a sense of sustainable emotional and physical wellbeing, and receive support to consistently make positive choices for family and the common good. DCFS utilizes a family centered model in delivering services that is focused on engaging children, families and the family team, and encouraging their participation in decisions. DCFS programs include child protective and welfare service delivery in rural Nevada and oversight of urban county-operated child protective and welfare services, children's mental/behavioral health treatment and residential services (outpatient and inpatient acute) in urban Nevada, and statewide juvenile justice services including state-operated youth training centers and youth parole. DCFS is an extremely complex organization with incredibly dedicated and professional staff that are committed to the Nevada children and families we serve. This is a full time position that includes a variable work agreement with overtime after 40 hours per week. This position may be required to work evening and/or weekend hours. The State of Nevada and DCFS offer an excellent benefits package that includes health, dental and vision insurance, participation in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), accrual of 15 days of annual and 15 days of sick leave, 11 paid holidays and no city, county, state or social security tax.
