Building a secure and hopeful today so children facing health issues and poverty succeed tomorrow. That's the promise of The Children's Place Association.
We help children overcome illness and extreme poverty so they can lead healthy, productive lives. Opened in 1991 in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis, our Chicago-based organization now serves children and families challenged by a wide range of conditions. Our programs include Early Childhood Education, 24-hour Nursing, Family Housing, Supportive Services, Foster/Adoptive Care and Summer Camp. We serve more than 350 Chicago-area children and caregivers annually, and our international program helps 300 HIV/AIDS-affected children in Haiti.
We are seeking a bilingual Parent Educator to support Spanish-speaking families in our Early Childhood Education program. The Parent Educator is responsible for providing weekly home visits to families enrolled in the Home Based Education program. The Parent Educator implements the Baby Talk curriculum and maintains confidential family files. He/She participates in the planning and supervision of seasonal family activities, gives program information to clients and engages in weekly staff meetings and client charting.
