Description of Duties

This is a position at the Monroe County Department of Human Services located at a specialized secure detention (SSD) facility for pre-trial and post-sentencing detention of youth who are alleged or sentenced ‘adolescent offenders”.  The facility is part of the Monroe County Children’s Detention Center.  Duties involve performing intensive case management activities for youth.  Duties also involve assisting with admission intakes and discharge planning, coordinating out-of-county admissions and discharges, providing baseline assessments for youth and families to promote family engagement.
