If you are interested in providing gender-specific treatment services for pregnant and parenting women and their children, Project LINK is for you!

The goal at Project LINK is to engage parents in needed services and improve outcomes for newborns and families. Project Link has targeted treatment opportunities specifically for women using substances. They offer trauma informed treatment, case management, connections to other treatment providers, and specific programming to cut down on barrier to treatment. Project Link case managers will submit for Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) credential supervision and co-facilitate substance abuse disorder (SUD) groups. 

Case Managers in Project LINK are responsible for engaging women in individualized services, education, assessment and discharge planning services. Case Managers outreach clients through home visits to engage absent clients, assess safety of parent and child, and intervene when clients are in crisis. The parents may have emotional and/or substance abuse issues and have difficulty accessing needed medical, psychiatric, social, educational, vocational, and other supports essential for living in the community and meeting their basic needs.

Requirements:

  • Education: Bachelor's degree in a human services field. CSAC is a plus!
