Are you ready to work for an employer who cares about your wellbeing? Family Services cares about their team and in addition to their excellent benefit package, they are now offering a staff sabbatical program. Being the helper is hard work and Family Services doesn't want you to burn out!

Family Services is a non-profit organization that protects, heals and cares for children and families throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

When traumatic situations occur, our staff is there to assist the individual or family with their journey of healing and recovery. Family Services cares for individuals who are isolated, abandoned or just need help developing the skills to live successfully.

The Healthy Families program of Family Services is a comprehensive and intensive home visitation program that has a full-time opening for a Family Support Specialist in our Door County office. The Family Support Specialist establishes a trusting relationship with overburdened families by delivering service that is culturally competent, strength-based, family centered and family directed.

Melissa, Family Support Specialist, enjoys the opportunity to work with a variety of families to establish a relationship with them and help them with their needs so they can be confident parents as well as feel supported. It is special to see parents celebrate the things that may seem small, such as their child finally reaching for their toy, and the parents share that excitement with you as the Family Support Specialist. One of the things that Sandy enjoys most about her position as a Family Support Specialist is building relationships with the families and supporting them in their parenting journey. I look forward to seeing families each week and celebrating their successes and supporting them with any questions they may have to help them meet their family's goals.
