Mission Kids is hiring a Full-Time Family Advocate to join our team!
Family Advocate – Full Time
The Family Advocate (FA) is considered to be a member of the multidisciplinary team, along with The Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth, District Attorney’s Office, law enforcement, and medical specialists. The Family Advocate must possess the skills and demeanor to interface with child victims and their parents and the other professionals who form the multidisciplinary team around any given case. The critical role of the FA is to educate clients, help them anticipate possible stressors, provide accurate, up-to-date information, and continued access to services. The Family Advocate coordinates services to ensure a consistent and comprehensive network of support for the child and family.
