The Meadowlark House Child Advocacy Center is now hiring several positions including a Part-Time Therapist, and a Full and Part Time Child and Family Advocate.
Meadowlark House provides a multidisciplinary approach to child abuse and neglect with a special emphasis on child sexual abuse. This approach is based on an agreement between the offices of the County Attorneys, Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), mental health centers, multiple law enforcement jurisdictions, school professionals, and area medical professionals. Meadowlark House integrates the various approaches of these agencies’ services in order to provide a comprehensive response that best meets the needs of child abuse victims and their families or care providers while also preventing duplication of agency efforts. The Meadowlark House serves Ford, Clark, Comanche, Edwards, Gray, Hodgeman, Meade, and Kiowa counties.
Interviews at Meadowlark House are available for victims and witnesses of sexual abuse who are two and a half years of age and older. Select cases involving serious physical abuse, other forms of abuse and neglect, or involving other crimes are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Meadowlark House promotes and facilitates community awareness, prevention and education on child abuse with special emphasis on child sexual abuse.
Increased grant funding has allowed the Meadowlark House to provide on-site therapy services for the first time. The part-time position includes funding for training as well as for providing trauma-informed, strengths-based therapy services to children and families referred to the Meadowlark House. See link below for job description.
