Catholic Family Service
Region: Calgary area Type: Full time
Location: Calgary Salary: (not entered)

Catholic Family Service (CFS) is all about building strong families. Our programs and services respond to the challenges that threaten families and leave them vulnerable. We focus on enhancing the mental health and well-being of our clients, empowering parents, nurturing children’s healthy development and enabling success in school. We take an integrated approach across our service portfolio, always looking for the opportunity to encourage discussion and healing at the family level. In so doing, we enable CFS professionals to help their clients build strong and resilient families – and to break through the cycle of vulnerability to live the lives they have always wanted. We serve and employ people from all faith traditions, cultures and backgrounds.


The Position:

Title: Director, Louise Dean Centre                                                                    Job Type: Full-time


The Opportunity:

Reporting to the Senior Director of Programs and Services, the Director of Louise Dean Centre oversees program development, delivery, and evaluation of the CFS programs offered in partnership with the Calgary Board of Education and Alberta Health Services at Louise Dean Centre.

You see yourself as a change agent and silo-buster, with a commitment to customer service, collaboration, and a family systems approach. You have a passion for the target population: expecting and parenting teens (moms and dads), their children (infants and toddlers), and extended families/natural supports.  You work well with a wide range of personalities and educational disciplines, building a cohesive working environment that promotes the purpose, ambition and values of CFS. This role requires someone who is well-organized and efficient, available to flex work hours, travel and attend events on evenings and weekends.
