What You’ll Do
As a Service Navigator, you will be responsible for guiding individuals with developmental disabilities, and their families, through a new California Policy called Self Determination. You will lead people through a person-centered planning process, develop person-centered plans, guide them through a budgeting process, and advocate for them with Regional Centers. In addition, you will assist customers with finding tailored support services, community supports, activities, and direct support staff.
What We’re Looking For
We think the right fit is more important than direct experience. We’re looking for a candidate who is non-judgmental, patient, flexible, a good listener, and a team player. This is a challenging and rewarding position and experience with individuals with developmental disabilities is a must. If you have experience developing person-centered plans and familiarity with self-determination or self-directed care, great. If not, we’ll train you; we care more about finding someone who is excited to help our clients and fits well with our team.
