    Maryhurst provides treatment programs for severely traumatized children who most often are victims of sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse. Children in our care turn to risk-taking behaviors to cope with their pain. These behaviors can include such actions as running away, truancy, suicidal gesturing, delinquency, and substance abuse. Their issues are further complicated by years of multiple placements in foster care and hospital settings. In fact, prior to their involvement with Maryhurst, any one of our children is likely to have experienced an average of 20 out-of-home placements. We work hard to provide consistency, structure, and love for children. It is because of this philosophy and the hard work of staff and volunteers that our programs are successful.

        Seven Counties Services, Inc.

        Support Broker/Case Manager
        Salary Range-  $28,451-$35,564
        Position location- Office based at 3717 Taylorsville Road, Louisville 40220


        This is a unique position that is called a "Support Broker".  Medicaid is the funding source.  Medicaid requires that Support Brokers have a degree in one of the following fields:  social work, sociology, psychology or “other human services field”.   If you aren’t sure whether your degree qualifies, please inquire.

        Support Brokers work in a specific Medicaid waiver (Michelle P. Waiver) program to complete assessments (annually), develop budgets and plans of care for children and adults with developmental disabilities who meet the "level of care" requirement for this program and also qualify for Medicaid under this waiver.  

        This job involves, among other things,  monthly client home visits, assisting clients in linking to other providers, keeping services approved for all providers, monitoring the client’s budget, and assisting with timesheet training and payroll processing (2 week cycle).

        Direct experience with persons with developmental disabilities is a strong asset, though not an absolute requirement.  Very strong communication skills (verbal and written) are critical as is good judgment, attention to details and very strong organizational skills.  Reliable transportation is a must.  We offer a flexible and supportive work environment, strong team support and training program, mileage reimbursement and competitive benefits.  

        Questions?  Please contact either Priscilla Freeman or Becky Wolf with the Developmental Services Office at Seven Counties.

The purpose of the Interprofessional Fellowship Program is to develop future mental health leaders with vision, knowledge, and commitment to transform mental health care systems in the 21st century by emphasizing functional capability, rehabilitation, and recovery. The Fellowship Program is offered at six VA sites (see below).
        Applications are being solicited across a range of disciplines (including social work, nursing, occupational therapy, psychology, clinical pastoral education, and vocational rehabilitation). Application and position details vary across disciplines. Social work fellows must be U.S. citizens and must be graduates of accredited masters or doctoral programs in social work.
