KINSHIP SUPPORT SPECIALIST

The Buckeye Ranch is one of Ohio’s leading providers of emotional, behavioral, mental health, and substance abuse services.  We work with children and young adults, many of whom have experienced abuse or neglect, and families who are facing significant challenges and often multiple stressors.

Permanent Family Solutions Network (PFSN), a managed care agency for Franklin County Children Services (FCCS), is currently seeking a Kinship Support Specialist to work collaboratively with child welfare workers to identify, locate, and provide support to potential kinship care providers for children involved in the child welfare system. 

PFSN is dedicated to ensuring that children are placed in the least restrictive environment (LRE) possible to minimize any trauma that may have occurred in the course of being removed from their home. 

Kinship Support Specialists also assess the strengths and needs of potential providers, through the home study process, and offer support, information, and resources to those who eventually become care providers.
