About working as a Caseworker at Lorain County Children Services

We are passionate about our work and we are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our children, our families and our community. You will join a high-energy environment where people work in teams to achieve results. Lorain County Children Services is a high performing agency (exceeding state and federal outcome goals) and is accredited by the Council on Accreditation for services to families and children. At Lorain County Children Services we truly believe that the best way to succeed is to do the right things right, the first time, on time, every time, one child at a time.

Working with clients to develop and implement strategies to help them protect their children from harm requires intelligence, maturity, persuasiveness, pragmatism, and quite often a sense of humor. We are committed to keeping caseloads below the national average, giving you the ability to focus on quality, not quantity.

We're looking for Bachelor's graduates with a degree in Social Work, or Master's graduates with degrees in Social Work, Counseling, Education, Criminology/Criminal Justice, Psychology or Public Administration, with outstanding academic credentials - but that isn't enough. We search for people with an ability to balance being independent decision-makers and members of a team. As a result, our casework staff form an extremely talented and diverse pool. In joining our staff, your personal life experience, talent, energy and commitment will add to the richness that currently exists.
