Breaking the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
Casa de Esperanza strives to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect for at-risk infants, children and their families, by providing comprehensive residential and aftercare programs that transform people and communities.
We are looking for applicants with a broad range of skills. Applicants will work directly with abused, neglected and HIV+ children who are 6 years of age or younger at the time of placement. Applicants will do everything necessary to properly and safely care for, advocate for and generally meet the daily needs of the four to five children placed in the home. This will include direct hands-on care of the children, daily household tasks, paperwork, participation in appointments with physicians, psychologists, developmental specialists, therapists (speech, physical and occupational) and any other specialists as needed. Applicants will provide 24-hour care to the children in a family style setting.
This is a challenging but rewarding internship opportunity. We are looking for a one-year placement with an option to extend. Two weeks of initial training is provided with additional trainings provided throughout the year. Supervisors live on-site and are available 24/7.
This would be an excellent opportunity for anyone who has recently graduated and is looking for some hands on experience before pursuing a further degree or employment. We hope you will seriously consider joining us in our mission to provide new hope to these wonderful children.
