Subject: Family and Children's Association seeks Student Interns for Senior Programs


We are actively seeking 2 interns for the Fall/Spring 2016-2017 academic year during the weekday hours of 9am - 5pm for our Senior Case Management programs. A 2nd year Masters student in Social Work or Mental Health Counseling is preferred. One supervisor is LCSW/SIFI certified and the other is LCSW - willing to acquire SIFI certification during the year.

FCA case managers offer comprehensive assessment and in-home services for seniors age 60 and over. We are committed to connecting seniors to available community resources they need to remain safely and independently at home. FCA also has a large senior volunteer program which includes the Friendly Visitor Program and Ombudservice. The Friendly Visitor program matches in-home visitors and telephone visitors with homebound elders, providing a supportive voice and sympathetic ear. In the Ombudservice program, individuals are trained to advocate for residents living in nursing homes, family type homes and assisted living facilities in Nassau County. These are wonderful programs that provide essential assistance and support to the seniors of our community.

Student Interns will need a car to make home visits where in-home counseling will be provided to homebound seniors. They will also have the opportunity to work on special projects which include caregiver support (education, online and group services), quality of life assessment, and coordination of the Friendly Visitor program.

Please refer any interested students by emailing me the following information:

·         Current resume

·         Year in Program/Field of Study/University (Ex: 1st year MSW at Stony Brook University)

·         Availability and Timeframe (Ex: Fall 2016 = M thru F 9-5/ Spring 2017 = T thru Th 3-9pm/Requires 21 hrs per week)

·         Supervision Requirements (Ex: LCSW vs LMSW vs MSW with 3 years experience or SIFI certified/ 1 hr supervision per week/ audio recordings)

·         Languages in which the intern is fluent

·         Other relevant information/experience

Thank you,
