UWGLV AmeriCorps Family Navigator


Do you have a passion for creating connections and finding resources for families and individuals? United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley is seeking individuals to serve as AmeriCorps members here in the Lehigh Valley.

The AmeriCorps Family Navigator will support COVID-19 response and its substantial impact on children and families. The goal of the Family Navigator is to meet an “early detection – early treatment” model, more preventative in nature for the child welfare system and more responsive in nature for the children’s mental health system.  The navigator will receive referrals directly from OCYS and meet with families to explore family needs related to basic need support, as well as child behavioral health concerns.  The navigator will follow the family from assessment of need to service linkage to monitoring and support to help the family access and follow through with treatment and supports.  The goal is to address the increase in child and family needs to prevent worsening of symptoms and deeper involvement with the child welfare system.

An AmeriCorps assignment is a service position that is grant funded and lasts for one year. 
The service term is October 2021 - August 2022. Members will serve approximately 20-30 hours per week.

AmeriCorps members earn a living stipend based on their service hours and upon successful completion of their term, they are eligible for an educational award that can be applied toward student loans or further educational expenses.

STIPEND $11,294
