We are excited to share that we have an opening for a bilingual (English and Spanish) intake clinician in our Tucson office! Intake clinicians are crucial in providing a welcoming experience to new clients. As an intake clinician for our behavioral health outpatient program, your primary responsibility will be facilitating the intake, assessment, and engagement of new children and families. Children and families seek services with Arizona’s Children Association for a variety of reasons related to their emotional well-being. We are seeking a motivated professional who enjoys working with children and families, has strong assessment and engagement skills, and is thorough in the completion of intake documentation.
Founded in 1912, Arizona's Children Association is one of the oldest and largest non-profits in the state of Arizona. When working with AzCA, you will be surrounded by highly talented and dedicated individuals who are committed to our mission of protecting children, empowering youth, and strengthening families.
At Arizona's Children Association, we believe in self-care and as such, offer a flexible schedule with paid time off, paid sick leave, 8 paid holidays, medical, dental and vision benefits!
