This position is located within the Community Based Care Program of the Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) in Las Vegas, NV. ADSD provides an atmosphere of innovative thinking, teamwork, friendly co-workers, and provides a positive working environment. Our mission is to provide leadership and advocacy in the planning, development, and delivery of a high quality comprehensive support service system to allow all of Nevada's elders, children, and adults with disabilities or special health care needs to live independent, meaningful, and dignified lives to the greatest extent possible. This recruitment may be used to underfill a Social Worker 2 position.

The selected candidate will ensure a coordinated support system that meets the needs of at-risk elderly and disabled persons by providing case management and essential services to recipients to facilitate community integration and avoid institutionalization.

Incumbents perform in a trainee capacity and acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities required in this occupation.
