Part-Time Trauma-Informed Pediatric Therapist


First Step Home is seeking to contract with a part-time trauma-informed pediatric therapist who will identify children needing this service through an assessment and develop weekly goals to enhance the behavioral of these children served.  This service could be provided one day a week (8 hours) or two days a week at 4 hours each day. Must be a LISW or a LPCC with experience with children as a scope of practice.
First Step Home is a residential and outpatient treatment program dedicated to women's centered care for addictions and co-occurring mental health and trauma related issues. The agency is nationally accredited by CARF and certified to provide services by the Ohio Mental Health Addiction Services Board.  The agency is focused on bringing best practices, collaborative partnerships and diversification of funding needed to address the needs of women of all ages and life stages that bring complex issues to the recovery program.

First Step Home was founded in 1993 in response to the need for a residential treatment facility that would permit children, ages 0 through 12, to live with their mother during treatment. This facility increased participation in substance abuse treatment and reduced the barrier of women being forced to place their children in foster care for extended periods of time. Clients of First Step Home include single women, pregnant women, women with criminal justice involvement and women with long histories of abuse. 

We are an exciting, talented, diverse group dedicated to women’s sustained recovery from substance abuse, mental health issues and trauma.
