Methodist Home for Children offers residential treatment for dually diagnosed children and teens. Typically, these young people need out-of-home care but don't meet criteria for inpatient psychiatric services.  Our goals are to help youth learn to live as productively and independently as possible, and to help youth manage behavioral issues so they can return to a public school setting.

The Residential Technician positions functions as a part of the clinical team in our culturally sensitive Residential Treatment Level III setting. Staff provide the necessary supports to clients who are dually diagnosed with a mental illness or severe emotional disturbance and co-occurring developmental disability. Service requires awake staff around the clock, and supervision of the clients is continuous. Shift work is involved with the positions requiring an ability to work irregular and weekend schedules.

AVAILABLE SHIFTS:

Weekdays 2pm - midnight and every other weekend 10am-10pm.

Weekdays midnight - 8am and every other weekend 10pm-10am.
