Job Summary
The future of the Lummi Nation depends on the wellness and education of our children, in both the western sense, and in accordance with Lummi culture. Lummi Child Welfare Social Workers are responsible for ensuring children in their care are properly prepared with both. The Transitions in Foster Care (Transitions) Advocate reports to a Child Welfare Supervisor but works independently to ensure all duties are completed to offer services to children and young adults who were previously involved in the child welfare system. The Transitions Advocate has primary responsibility preparing young people (age 16-18) to prepare to transition to adulthood, for managing all cases of young adults (ages 18 to 21) who request extended foster care services and checking in with care givers of children who transition to guardianship. The Transitions Advocate meets at least quarterly with young adults to offer support, training, and access to resources available through Lummi Child Welfare and the WA St Department of Children Youth and Families (DCYF). Priority services include housing, high school and post-secondary education, banking, budgeting, cultural and family connections, and job readiness.
