Supervised Visitation Program Manager
The Supervised Visitation (SV) Program Manager is responsible for the ongoing oversight and development of a program that provides a safe structure and welcoming environment for non-residential parents to visit their children, when the court has otherwise prohibited contact. Working in partnership with Whatcom County Superior Court, Faith Lutheran Church and volunteers, the SV program provides a temporary means for parents and children to maintain a connection and relationship until the parent can visit without supervision. The SV Program Manager is primarily responsible for conducting all program client intakes, assessing safety concerns and managing risk, collaborating with program partners, recruiting and training volunteers, and supervising program staff. The SV Program Manager will understand and have compassion for the dynamics and complexities present within the program and families served, will understand and promote the SV program’s alignment with the WDRC’s goals, will believe in the mission of the WDRC, and will enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to work with our team.
This position’s weekly hours include some weekday evenings to 7:30pm and some Saturday mornings to early afternoons.
To Apply: Review the full job description. Submit a cover letter, resume, and contact information for 3 professional references (at least 2 of which should be direct supervisors) to our Executive Director at email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and position will be open until filled.
