The Family Centre is looking for a motivated individual who is interested in challenging, fast-paced, frontline social work. The Family Intervention Generalist (FIG) provides in-home support to marginalized children and families who have Children’s Services involvement. This includes a significant proportion of First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and first generation Canadian families that have experienced the impacts of trauma and multigenerational abuse and neglect. The FIG position is a key role within Collaborative Service Delivery (CSD). The guiding principles of CSD are early engagement, family centered involvement, outcome based practice, collaboration and shared responsibility with Children’s Services and flexibility/innovation within the delivery of services.
The Family Centre has been working with community partners to build long term, promotional approaches to reverse the trend that an increasing proportion of our community’s children are at high risk. In our efforts to address the increasing number of families that are disenfranchised we have developed a conceptual framework to focus on healthy and safe communities whereby children live, grow and develop in family settings. This model has five fundamental constructs.
A Clinical Supervisor is involved in the recruiting, training and supervising of the therapy team.

The Family Centre is currently hiring energetic individuals interested in working with children as a Success Coach. The outcomes of the Success Coach Interventions are that students become positively engaged with the Coach and their schools, become positive actors within the school community, attend school, begin to succeed academically, reduce high risk behaviors, increase positive behaviors, develop positive goals, and begin to see themselves as having the potential for future success. The position reports to the Manager of Community Initiatives at The Family Centre.
The Family Centre’s Centralized Interpreter Service provides both interpretation and translation services to limited or non-English speaking individuals, on behalf of the organizations that request the service.
An interpreter is a bilingual/bicultural person who is trained to assist in the communication process between non-English speaking persons and English speaking service providers or organization representatives. The interpreter facilitates the cross-lingual/cultural process helping all participants involved to understand the beliefs and practices of each other relevant to the cultural and linguistic meaning of the interaction. The context is in the provision of public services, such as healthcare, community services, legal settings, social services, and educational institutions.
The Family Engagement Services Program offers Collaborative meetings between Professionals and Families, referred to as Circles and Family Group Conferences, to families through our Collaborative Services Delivery Partnership with Child and Family Services. Often during these circles children are present, and require childcare in a separate space during the adult conversation components of the circle. The provision of quality childcare allows parents to feel at ease and be able to focus on intent of the circle. Childcare providers are an important component to creating a successful circle. This position would be on an On Call Casual Basis and could involve daytime, evening and weekend work.
