We are seeking a Bilingual Family Advocate to support the families that we serve. This is an exempt position reporting to the Director of our early childhood center. Family advocates offer strength-based, culturally-appropriate, comprehensive support services.

Within our early childhood education centers, young children between the ages of two months and six years are learning and developing in NAEYC* accredited classrooms.

Family advocates also help caregivers connect to and develop relationships with their child's teachers.

To support self-sufficiency, family advocates provide case management, advocacy, and service coordination connected to a family's individual needs. In collaboration with the family, this involves working closely with other providers and agencies in the community.

Family advocates begin working with families at intake and continue to support children and their caregivers throughout the time the child is enrolled in our classrooms. Services are provided at the center, as well as in the community, where the family is living.
