Doorways for Women and Families (Doorways) is an Arlington-based nonprofit agency helping individuals and families create pathways out of homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual assault leading to safe, stable, and empowered lives. At Doorways, we embrace Empathy, Integrity, Inclusivity, Collaboration, Empowerment, and Respect. These values are the foundation to our approach.
There is no single cause of family or youth homelessness, and no single way that interpersonal violence affects people. While most of our clients are impacted by all of these traumas, Doorways’ services are available to all who are impacted by these hardships to ensure people have the right help to move forward. Knowing that the traumas of these life experiences often impact many aspects of family functioning, our services reach broadly and comprehensively to best support adults, youth, and children as they build on their unique strengths to create a brighter future.
Reporting to the Housing Program Manager, the HomeStart Bilingual Client Services Counselor (CSC) performs ongoing psychosocial assessment and provides trauma-informed counseling, interventions, and referrals to adult clients enrolled in the Doorways HomeStart Supportive Housing Program. The CSC provides services in client homes and community settings.
The CSC position is full time (40 hours/week) and requires flexible working hours including evenings. The position requires on-call availability in rotation with other clinical staff. The CSC requires personal transportation for home visits. We have two vacancies for this position.
Doorways for Women and Families is an Equal Opportunity Employer. People of color, women, LGBTQ candidates, and people of diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Doorways is committed to a diverse workplace and to supporting our staff with ongoing career development opportunities.
