Looking to make a difference in your work? LSI has a gratifying opportunity for a full time or part time Caseworker in Charles City for our Early Childhood program serving Floyd, Mitchell, and Chickasaw counties.

What We Do

As one of Iowa's most trusted human services agencies, LSI has a legacy of serving children and families for more than 150 years. Our Early Childhood Services provide critical care, guidance, and education to parents of young children across the state. Whether we're meeting with families through in-home weekly visits, connecting them to local resources in their community, or hosting support groups for parents to bond, this team makes a direct impact on the lives of the Iowans we are privileged to serve. You can join us on our mission to provide hope and healing.

What You'll Do

This position will provide direct casework and case management to families to optimize the home environment for children and their parents using assessment, education, support and advocacy. The objective for the Early Childhood Caseworker will be to assist clients and their families in developing skills for self-sufficiency.

Additionally, the Caseworker will help families obtain resources and services needed to create greater opportunities and personal responsibility. Internal and external collaboration as well as consistent supervision are main components of the position as well.

Caseworkers will meet with assigned families in person via traveling by car to their homes or other community settings and contact by telephone which may occur during normal business hours, after hours, or on weekends.

What You'll Need

Qualified applicants will have a Bachelor's degree in health or human service related field and 1-2 years of related experience.

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, Sex Offender registry and a criminal history check.
