Are you a father or father-figure who has supported a child through mental health or behavioral health challenges?
Have you fostered, adopted or provided kinship care to a child? Has your child or family experienced trauma and worked to get through it together? Then, we want to meet YOU!
Allegheny Family Network is hiring Family Support Partners to provide family peer support to other parents raising children with similar journeys. If you have been the primary decision maker or caregiver for a child with these challenges and want to learn how to help others persevere and support their children, then put your LIVED EXPERIENCE TO WORK and apply here: EMPLOYMENT | AFN (alleghenyfamilynetwork.org)
AFN's Father Support Partners have experience raising children - and making major decisions for their families - that many parents don't have to. They've learned how to be strong, determined, persistent, empowered, and educated so that their Family Voice and Family Choice could be respected and honored in the best interest of their child. Do you have a similar parenting experience? Then we want to meet YOU! If you've had experiences with your children, foster children, or stepchildren that required you to learn about resources, advocate as a parent or become informed about child-serving systems, like schools, juvenile justice, or CYF, then you may be able to use that experience to help other parents in Allegheny County!
