Job Responsibilities:

Children's Home has a strong history of working with universities to place interns into appropriate positions in order to give them the greatest opportunity to fulfill their field placement requirements. There are internship opportunities available in four areas of the agency: Live-In Care; Education; Family Services; and Community Affairs.

We have a continuum of care ranging from in-home intervention to residential treatment. Interns would have the ability to gain experience in many of these areas. Such areas include: Assessment, Case Management, Family and Individual Counseling, Crisis Intervention, Family Violence, Support Groups, Networking, and much more. Interns would also be eligible to participate in any of our agency-sponsored training opportunities while they are interning at the agency.

Students interested in obtaining an internship (unpaid) should submit an online application for Internship. Applicants may also attach an updated resume along with a cover letter. This letter should include the following:

The school requirements for the internship
The type of supervision that would be required
The number of hours required for the internship


The Children’s Home is fortunate to have the help of over 300 dedicated volunteers each year. Our volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

Mentoring (You must be at least 21 years of age)
Administrative / Office Support
Fund Raising / Special Events Support
Maintenance Support
Collecting / Providing In-Kind Items for: back-to-school, birthdays, extra-curricular activities, food drives, holidays and more.
