Dependency Advocacy Center (DAC), a nonprofit organization, provides free legal services to indigent parents and children involved with Santa Clara County's juvenile dependency system. Our clients face the removal of their children due to concerns of abuse and neglect. A myriad of issues are presented, including substance abuse, domestic violence, and mental health among others.

This is a full-time social worker position at DAC's Corridor Program. Corridor is a pilot program formed in collaboration with Santa Clara County Adult Probation to serve parents on formal probation who have both open dependency cases as well as who are at risk of child welfare system entry. The Corridor social worker will be part of a multidisciplinary team consisting of an attorney and two gender specific parent mentors. The roles and responsibilities of the Corridor social worker include: completing individualized needs assessments, providing referrals to resources in the community, ongoing case management, assistance in system navigation, and designing safety plans to prevent the need for a child to be removed from parental custody. The Corridor social worker consistently interfaces with service providers and advocates for clients with probation and Department of Family and Children Services social workers, attending court hearings, Team Decision Making meetings and Family Group Conferences.

Desired Qualifications include:

Graduate degree; demonstrated commitment to public interest issues; ability to multi-task and be a productive team player; ability to work compassionately and respectfully with clients in crisis; excellent verbal, interpersonal, writing, interviewing and organizational skills; bilingual skills preferred; knowledge of community resources in Santa Clara County; experience in child welfare, risk assessment and safety planning strongly encouraged.

Please attach resume and cover letter in separate PDF documents.
