No previous experience in casework or a degree in social work is required. We provide the training.
Caseworkers are PATH's hands that provide direct assistance to those in need. This critical role is one that requires compassion, and attention to detail as assistance is provided through our wide array of services.
Skills: Exhibit kindness and compassion in stressful circumstances Desire to listen and work with families to connect them to programs Computer literacy in entering data, intake eligibility Dependability: PATH depends on volunteers to meet the many needs of our East Texas neighbors daily. Willingness to commit to a weekly volunteer shift, and to be on time and respectful of other volunteer's time is important as a caseworker.
PATH seeks to restore HOPE with a PERSONALIZED approach to EMPOWER our East Texas neighbors to THRIVE in our community.
PATH's programs address the multiple factors affecting low income families that keep them in poverty, place them at risk of becoming homeless or in need of crisis intervention services, and limit the potential of children and adults to live stable, secure and prosperous lives.
Since 1984, PATH has served Smith County and the outlying counties with a small, diverse staff and a large base of supporters. Approximately 800 volunteers serve across PATH’s programs, addressing both emergency assistance and programs that empower and encourage self-sufficiency. The PATH staff and volunteers touch thousands of lives each month with a unique approach to serving. Every individual/family coming to PATH meets with a Caseworker every time they step through the doors of PATH. The Caseworker spends time with each client in order to:
Understand the client's current situation and needs.
Identify underlying issues or obstacles.
Provide direction and referrals and external resources as needed.
PATH remains a flexible organization, growing and changing to respond to emerging community needs.
