The Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) was created to be a comprehensive agency exclusively dedicated to the social, emotional, and physical well-being of children, youth, and families regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or other socioeconomic factors. We believe our workforce should reflect the communities we serve and are actively searching for candidates that reflect that diversity.
We're looking for a Social Service Specialist 3 to join our team to help support and protect children, youth, and families. Together we will work toward the common goal of eliminating child and youth outcome disparities based on race and ethnicity. Our vision is that "All Washington's children and youth grow up safe and healthy-thriving physically, emotionally, and educationally, nurtured by family and community."
Social Service Specialist 3
DCYF is currently seeking proactive learners and resilient contributors to join our Children and Family Welfare Services (CFWS) unit in our Richland office. Here you will perform specialized case management in the Child and Family Welfare Services unit. This position ensures timely permanency outcomes for all children on their caseload to include reunification, adoption, guardianship, and third party custody plans. As a CFWS specialist, you will engage in critical thinking through shared decision making and case planning and protect children from the risk of harm whenever such risks are indicated. This position receives little supervision and the incumbent exercises independent judgment in devising own work methods to provide an advanced level of specialized, culturally competent, and solution-focused case management.
