General Dynamics Information Technology Case Coordinator (Bi-Lingual in Spanish Social Worker) in Phoenix, Arizona
What does ORR do? The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) transfers unaccompanied children from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) into the care and custody of a safe sponsor. By doing this, we are able to help children in need become integrated members of American society.
How can you help children in need? As a case coordinator, it will be your responsibility to track new placements and the progress of minors in ORR funded care while keeping records on case statuses. You will incorporate child welfare principles as well as take into consideration the unusual nature of each child's situation, when making placement decisions. Over the course of each placement, you will visit care provider sites to conduct weekly interviews with children and when necessary, will complete a release or transfer recommendation to an environment that is in the best interest of the child.

Writing reports on progress and any issues related to program trends.
