This Stride Therapeutic Caregiving- model is a therapeutic family based, culturally safe, short term out of home placement program intended to support youth with complex trauma-impacted care needs. This model is a wraparound service that incorporates a Therapeutic Caregiver, as the primary change agent, working within a Therapeutic Team, including cultural supports to provide individualized trauma informed supports.

 

Position Overview

 

Working collaboratively with Team and Circle members, the Caregiver Coach’s primary responsibility is to equip, empower, and support Caregivers in the Stride Program. As the primary agent of change, Caregivers require training, coaching, feedback, assistance in strategizing and troubleshooting, crisis support, and compassion.

Caregiver Coaches take responsibility for ensuring all of these needs are addressed. In addition, they join the youth’s Circle and take primary responsibility for ensuring accountability of the Circle to meet regularly, stay engaged with the youth, and for its tasks such as cultural learning and connection, community connections and navigation, family finding, and community resources. They support the logistical tasks of the program at the Caregiver level such as licensing, home checks, payments, and so on.
