Child Maltreatment Positions at the Kempe Center

The University of Colorado Denver is seeking applications for up to three open positions as Health Care Professional – SafeCare Home Visitor/Coach/Trainer to work at the Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. The Center is known for its expertise in treating abused children, training future professionals, and for excellence in research, education, advocacy and community service.

The positions will serve as SafeCare Home Visitors/Coaches/Trainers. SafeCare is an evidence-based, in-home parenting program that will be provided to families with children aged 0-5, at-risk for child maltreatment and who have come to the attention of county human services. SafeCare Home Visitors/Coaches/Trainers will attend a week long in-person training to become SafeCare Home Visitors, and within the next 12-18 months receive subsequent training and certification to become Coaches and Trainers by the National SafeCare Training and Research Center (NSTRC). Once this certification is acquired, each person will perform SafeCare training, coaching and certification duties to sites across the state of Colorado and will function as a member of a larger SafeCare Coach/Trainer team that provides ongoing support, coaching and consultation to sites across the state. Required travel will range between 25% – 75% time at sites across Colorado.
