"I want to make a positive impact in our kids' lives. That's why I like being here. I'm able to make a difference." Katy, a Youth Specialist at Beloit

If you have a passion for making a positive change in your community, LSI is looking for you. LSI's Beloit Residential Treatment Center in Ames is looking for a compassionate, dedicated full-time Caseworker to make an impact in the lives of some of Iowa's most vulnerable kids. Many of the children we serve have experienced trauma or adverse experiences. It's our job and our privilege to empower them toward success.

Duties

The Caseworker will provide direct service to children on Beloit's campus in several ways, including:

  • Assessment and diagnostic skills

  • Treatment modalities

  • Crisis intervention

  • Case management

  • Advocacy

Other duties may include authoring treatment plans, progress reports, and other reports that may be requested.

This job is a perfect fit for someone interested in collaboration with other LSI team members and department workers. The Caseworker also oversees treatment services provided to children on campus, which may occur outside of normal business hours (evening hours & possible weekend hours). Our campus operates an on-call rotation schedule, and the Caseworker is asked to carry a crisis phone during the rotation.

Salary and Benefits

In addition to joining a family of caring teammates, you'll also enjoy a competitive salary and benefit package at LSI, including a 401(k), paid time off, and health, dental, life, and vision insurance.

Qualifications

Qualified candidates for this job will have either:

  • A Bachelor's degree in Social Work or a related human services field, plus two years of full-time work related experience

  • A Master's degree in Social Work, Psychology, or Counseling

This position requires a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a good driving record, and the ability to pass an extensive background check, including checks of the Dependent Adult and Child Abuse registries, the Sex Offender registry, and the criminal history check.

Are you ready for the most challenging and rewarding adventure of your life? Join our LSI team today!
