(Open until filled; please apply by January 22, 2021 for early consideration.)
Since 1909 Childhaven has been a leader in serving children and families who have experienced trauma and adversity. In the past few years, we have been adding services and locations, becoming more family and community-focused, and forming high impact partnerships to increase our impact. In June 2020, Childhaven consolidated with Renton Area Youth and Family Services and Art with Heart, which further expanded our capacity to better serve more children and families. By combining our 110+ year legacy of early childhood trauma care with the power and expertise of our new partners, Childhaven is building a continuum of care model that is unlike any other in the Puget Sound Region.
Going forward, we are embarking on a new and ambitious strategic plan to strengthen programs, expand impact, and embrace innovation. In the next five years our goals are to double the number of locations and quadruple the number of children and families we are serving - all while developing and strengthening strategic partnerships with other community-based organizations, referral sources, government agencies, and universities. In doing so, we are opening doors to new roles and opportunities within the organization. And that is where you come in.
