First Home Care is a core service agency providing Medicaid and mental health services to children, adolescents and families in Washington DC and the surrounding areas. Our programs offer free-standing, independent levels of care; however, they also function as contracted, wraparound services. As such, they provide ancillary treatment to support programs of social service agencies, special education programs, and office-based therapies.
First Home Care is looking for Clinical Coordinators to provide therapeutic services to children and their families in and around Washington, DC. Evening and weekend work required to meet the scheduling needs of our families. Work with children and families using an intensive, in- home therapeutic model that works with youth and their families to prevent out-of-home placement, increase reunification, and stabilize urgent crisis within the home, school, and community. 95% of the work is done in the home, school, and community.
Be an integral part of a dynamic treatment team that includes family, community partners, natural and formal supports!
