For more than 100 years, the Christopher House mission has been to strengthen and empower economically disadvantaged children and their families by providing a continuum of educational and human services.
We operate accredited early learning, elementary, and out of school time programs grounded in research-based curricula and high-quality instruction. Understanding that stand-alone education interventions are not enough, Christopher House utilizes a family-centered approach that engages parents and care givers in the child’s healthy development and provides opportunities for sustained economic self-sufficiency for the whole family. Christopher House values high expectations and an educational program that leverages arts integration, project-based learning, parent involvement, celebration of diversity, and a commitment to measureable results. These values are the framework of our learning community and extend to students, parents, teachers, and administrators. These values have resulted in educational services that produce significant returns in student achievement and parental involvement.
In the fall of 2013, Christopher House built on its portfolio of early learning schools and expanded this transformative culture into a birth to eighth grade school. The school will create unprecedented collaboration between early childhood and elementary educators as well as family support programs. In addition, it will provide foundational exposure during the earliest years of life to our culture of high expectations and academic excellence.
Christopher House is currently looking to hire a paid Family Assessment Intern who enjoys working with children and families, easily acquires new information and knowledge, and can juggle several activities at once.
The Family Assessment Intern will work 20-25 hours a week providing ongoing support services to families with completion of the family assessment, creating Family Goals, and completion of Family to Family Holiday program registration. The Intern will obtain and share significant family information in order to provide referrals for services and support and maintain accurate records in multiple databases as well as paper files, as required by funders.
An ideal candidate must have a High School diploma or GED, experience working in subsidized or publicly funded programs, good computer skills, knowledge of COPA and ETO database, and good verbal & written communications skills. Bilingual in English/Spanish is required.
